A dad tried to get himself in the mood for England's Euro 2020 semi-final tonight by singing 'It's Coming Home' while he drove his fiancee to hospital to give birth. Watch below:
As his pained partner Amy has contractions in the passenger seat, Simmie Sweeney, from Birmingham, can be seen belting out the iconic 'Three Lions' anthem.
Unsurprisingly, Amy doesn't take it too well and quickly tells her other half to shut up.
The 26-year-old posted the clip to Twitter earlier today, and it has already been viewed more than 47,000 times, receiving well over 2,000 likes.
The post was captioned: "Reckon I'll be out in time for tonight?"
Speaking about the video, Simmie said: "I thought there's no better time to let people know it's coming home than during child labour.
"We're both football fans. Amy isn't as much of a fan as me, but she's got involved with the Euros.
"I've had it before where people have said I look like Harry Kane.
"We're having a little girl so if Harry Kane scores a winner, I can't call a girl Harry, but maybe Harriet?
"It's a conversation to be had."
But despite the slight interruption to his plans, Simmie says he's still hoping to catch some of the action later tonight.
He said: "I'll be watching the clock tonight before kick off. I've brought the iPad so I'll have to multi-task if the baby isn't born by then.
"This is our third child. I think she'll be more relaxed if I stick football on in the background - or I'll be shouted at. One or the other."
The couple had previously joked that Amy would probably go into labour on one of the biggest day in the football calendar.
And Simmie admitted that it could be a 'very special day' for them both.
"I'm off work for the build up of today and Amy's already overdue," he said.
"All week, we've said it'll land on this day if England gets to the semi-finals.
"Lo and behold this morning she started getting contractions.
"Amy doesn't know she's gone viral on Twitter yet. She's still in labour.
"If England win the semi-finals, it'll be a very special day. It won't get much better.
"I've had to put my phone on 'do not disturb' because of the reaction on Twitter. My phone battery went from 80 percent to six percent."
Also, it should be pointed out. Don't use your phone while driving a car.
