A Saudi man who was delighted by the birth of his first son nearly went to court after he hugged and kissed the female doctor who delivered his wife, newspapers reported on Sunday.

The man, with five daughters, waited impatiently at the hospital in the western port of Jubail after his wife went into labour and was admitted to the gynecology section, they said.

When he was told that he got a boy, he happily rushed towards the female doctor, hugged and kissed her, the papers said.

But the doctor’s reaction caught the elated father completely off guard. She reported him to the police and was nearly taken to court before she accepted his apology in front of hospital employees.
