MANHATTAN — Were you stuck on the FDR Drive Monday morning, say about 8 a.m.? This baby is the reason.

Nicola Wong came into the world just as the morning rush hour was underway — and right in the middle of it, too.

“There was a wonderful reason for this morning’s FDR traffic!” NYPD tweeted, along with a photo of the newborn.

Wong was safely delivered on the side of the highway by NYPD officers, police said. The baby and his family were taken to a hospital.
