WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts couple is celebrating the birth of their daughter with a numerically unusual birth time and date.
Clare Elizabeth Keane was born at 10:11 a.m. Saturday — making her birth time and date 10:11, 12-13-14.
Parents Jennie and Matthew Keane, of Uxbridge, hadn't even thought of the possible numerical feat until a nurse at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester mentioned the combination.
When Jennie Keane started having contractions Friday night the time and date became part of the plan.
Matthew Keane tells The Telegram & Gazette (http://bit.ly/1zfgAy8 ) "we were laughing the whole time that she was pretty close."
Jennie Keane says she's just glad the 7-pound, 2-ounce Clare wasn't 8 pounds, 9 ounces.
Babies were born in Billings, Montana, and Cleveland at the same time Saturday.
