SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — The time and date aligned for a baby girl born in Montana, and the infant’s weight came close to making the event even more remarkable.
Quincy Kessler was born at St. Vincent Healthcare in Billings at 10:11 a.m. on 12/13/14.
Her birth weight, at 7.84 pounds, almost aligned with the other numbers. A fraction of an ounce more, and she would have weighed 7.89 pounds.
The baby is the second daughter born to Trenton and Melida Kessler.
Melida Kessler told The Billings Gazette that nurses in the hospital room noted around 10:05 a.m. that the 10:11 time might work out.
At that point, she says she started to push and Quincy came out at 10:11.
In Ohio, seven-pound, 14-ounce Hazel Grace was born Saturday morning to Leisha Campbell and Shawn Zimmerman at Cleveland’s Fairview Hospital. Her family already knew she’d be born on Saturday’s special date. They didn’t know she’d get the minute right, too.
“Everyone is telling us we should play the lottery,” Campbell said. “We feel this is a lucky day and are excited to get family photos with Santa.”
Saturday’s Dec. 13, 2014, represented the last sequential calendar date for at least 20 years, if you count Jan. 2, 2034, or 89 years if you choose to wait for Jan. 2, 2103.
Hazel was getting a visit from her three older sisters, Aubree, Adalynn and Josalyn, on Sunday. The family lives in Cleveland.
