Julia Roberts almost failed to make it to hospital to give birth to her twins last month (28NOV04) - because her car broke down.

The OSCAR-winning beauty, 37, finally made it to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Hollywood with husband DANNY MODER when a passing taxi driver picked them up.

A source says, "Danny said, 'I did everything I could to keep Julia calm, and played it really cool like it was no problem. But deep down I was panicking big time.'"

Roberts later gave birth to daughter HAZEL and son PHINNAEUS after undergoing an emergency caesarian section.
