DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A South Carolina woman who drove her minivan into the Atlantic Ocean with her three children inside has given birth at a Florida hospital.

A spokesman for the Florida Department of Children and Families told the Daytona Beach News-Journal that the newborn is with family members. There was no word about the baby's gender or when the birth occurred.

In March, 32-year-old Ebony Wilkerson of North Charleston, South Carolina, drove her van into the surf off Daytona Beach. She was arrested a few days later and remains in custody on $1.2 million bail. She faces three counts each of attempted second-degree murder and child abuse.

An attorney representing the children's father says Lutful Ronjon doesn't have the children.

Wilkerson's attorneys have filed notice they may seek an insanity defense.
