A passenger on the Queen Mary 2 gave birth to a baby boy late Saturday night, just before the ship pulled into the harbor in Brooklyn.

The proud new mom, a German woman identified only as Johanna, was on a transatlantic trip from England when her water broke before giving birth to the first baby born on the vessel.

She wasn't due for another three weeks, but when the little tyke decide to arrive a bit early, her brother whisked her to the ship's hospital, where a doctor delivered the new bundle of joy named Benjamin Brooklyn

Once the 2,620-passenger vessel pulled into harbor, Johanna and baby were taken to New York Methodist Hospital, according to FDNY.

The new arrival — Johanna's third child — is in good health.
