The night after he protested with hundreds against the murder of a three-month-old baby by a Hamas terrorist in Jerusalem, Attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir was blessed with the birth of a new son - right in the middle of his weekly radio show with ex-MK Dr. Michael Ben-Ari.

Just several minutes after they began their show "Bypassing from the Right" which broadcasts live on Galei Yisrael (Israel Radio) every Friday, Ben-Gvir abandoned the microphone and drove off quickly to the birthing room.

The attorney had received a text message calling him to come urgently to the hospital for his son's birth, and said on air he had to leave before rushing out of the studio and straight to the delivery room.

"Already on the way to the hospital I got dozens of text messages and phone calls from listeners blessing me and my wife and dozens of prayers, blessings and missions telling me what to do so that the birth would pass smoothly," Ben-Gvir told Arutz Sheva.

"The birthing went well and thank G-d we had a healthy son born to us," said the proud father who lives in Kiryat Arba, adjacent to Hevron.

Ben-Gvir was even able to make it back to the recording studio in time for the end of the show to announce to listeners that the birth was successful, and to tell Ben-Ari about the warm support he had received from the audience.
