London: The wife of the doctor who delivered a newborn Barack Obama back in 1961 has revealed that she was shocked to see her husband``s signature on the US President’s birth certificate.

Ivalee Sinclair, the wife of Dr David A. Sinclair, claimed she had no clue that her late husband brought the future President into the world - in Hawaii- until she saw Obama ``s birth certificate.

Even though her husband passed away in 2003, the entire family is now celebrating.

"Life is full of surprises! We are huge Obama supporters and our whole family has been calling one another all morning," TMZ quoted Sinclair as saying.

"I know my husband is just looking down on us smiling. We had no idea that he delivered President Obama until this morning when we saw the birth certificate ... It is very exciting.

“I just can``t believe it. We had no way of knowing. Everyone is calling us and I``m looking forward to calling all of the family back and informing them that it is true," she added.
