A Texas baby born in the bathroom of a fast food chain will get all the free food she wants for life.

But that's not all! Franchise owner Ben Stover has pledged some other perks to Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin after she was born in his San Antonio Chick-fil-A location this week.

Gracelyn's nugget-themed first birthday is already being planned and Stover said she's already been offered her first job when she turns 16, according to the Star-Telegram.

For the first girl with a birth certificate that reads "Born in Chick-fil-A," these are all just facts of life.

Gracelyn's bizarre tale began Tuesday night as her parents, Robert and Falon Griffin, were en route to the hospital with Falon in labor.

On their way, the plan was to drop their other children off with friends they intended to meet in the parking lot of a Chick-fil-A.

But before they left, Falon Griffin said she needed to use the restroom. In fact, the urge was so intense that they had to bang on the door of the chicken sandwich chain and ask to use the facilities after hours.

The employees obliged and the expecting mom went to the bathroom where, before long, the staff alerted Ben that something was wrong. 

"The manager said, 'She’s in the restroom and she’s screaming,'" Robert recalled in a Facebook post. "So there we were ... my wife and I in a tiny stall in the bathroom, and I could see the top of our little girls head crowning as maggie was straddling the toilet."

As little Gracelyn continued zooming into the world, Robert saw a speed bump.

"When she got to the shoulders, I realized the chord [sic] was wrapped around her neck TWICE. didn’t want to alert my wife, so just told her try to relax for a minute and I was somehow able to unwrap the chord [sic] from the baby’s neck," Robert wrote. "With two more strong pushes, and using my shirt for a towel, out came Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin."

Robert Griffin thanked the emergency operators who helped over the phone along the way, as well as the first responders who arrived after staff called 911. 

The proud dad also threw in a nod at his faith and political leanings after his little girl was born in a restaurant that's closed on Sundays and known for its devoutly Christian leadership. 

"I thinks (sic) it’s pretty ironic that a proud conservative, Christian family would have a baby in a Chick-Fil-A, and wrapped in a Trump 2020 T-shirt! BOOM #maga," he wrote.
