Woman who named her baby ‘Atom Bomb’ arrested for transporting drugs

A woman who named her baby ‘Atom Bomb’ has been arrested for transporting methamphetamine.

Jessica Killian gave birth to her son on New Year’s Day in the front seat of a car when she was travelling to the hospital.

The Cleveland mother decided to call her son ‘Atom Bomb’ because when he was being delivered, “he came in like an A-Bomb.”

Springfield News reports that Jessica has since been arrested for transporting meth in the same vehicle that she gave birth to her son in.

The mother-of-four had baggies and scales inside of the car, which police believe she was using to manufacture drugs.

She was charged with drug trafficking, possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver drugs, and a misdemeanour count of possession of drug paraphernalia three weeks after giving birth.

Following his unconventional birth, Atom Bomb’s umbilical cord was tied using a shoestring until both he and his mother could make it to the hospital.

Jessica said afterwards that she was glad her son was born in the front seat of her boyfriend’s car while her five-year-old watched.

“He is perfect to have been born in a car, I don’t know,” Killian said. “I guess you would think something would have went wrong, but it didn’t.”

Atom Bomb is now in the custody of a family member.
