Lucky number 11! Baby born on 1-11-11 at 11:11 in hospital room 11
Can a baby be born lucky? I'm not sure, but if it's possible, Dane Edwards was! According to My Fox Tampa Bay, little Dane was born on 1-11-11 at 11:11 in room 11 of a Sarasota hospital. His parents, Derek and Shanell, explained that although Shanell was scheduled to be induced on January 11th, the rest of the timing and the hospital room -- number 11 -- just happened without any intention. From the My Fox article:
"We came in at 7, and then we were too early so we went home. And then we came back, the timing was perfect, and then we get to our room -- and it's 11," he explained. Soon after, the jokes started about having an 11:11 baby. It was the nurse who noticed the minutes ticking down to a minute away from a string of consecutive numbers.
Well, the joke turned into reality when Dane, who weighed six pounds, once ounce, entered the world at exactly 11:11. His mom and dad say he will bring good luck. It's hard to argue with that! A new baby born on 1-11-11 at 11:11. What are the chances? If you want to see the adorable little guy, check out the story on MyFox, where there's a brief video of the family.
