Uber driver shows up with a baby

A TikTok user, @ladique, shared on TikTok that she requested a ride on the Uber App, and a gentleman arrived with a baby. The woman said the Uber driver kept apologising for bringing a child.

@ladique revealed to her viewers that the Uber driver was a single dad whose wife had passed away due to a car accident and was, therefore, juggling life without the mother of his child. As the video continued, the lady shared that the baby kept turning around until she gave her a blanket.
