Little Oscar Aguirre was born to be a commuter.

The baby boy was born in Pennsylvania Station Wednesday morning, surprising his expecting mom as she waited for her Long Island-bound train.

Ana Aguirre told the Daily News her 6-pound, 12-ounce bundle of joy was perfect. The 32-year-old mom was expecting to give birth any day. But it wasn't until she stood at the platform waiting for an LIRR train to Centereach that she began to feel labor pains.

Two MTA police officers rushed Aguirre to a district office where they helped waiting paramedics deliver Oscar.
