A baby girl from Missouri was born on July 7 at 7:11 pm, weighing exactly 7lbs.
And 11 oz!
The coincidence surprised her parents, Johntez Brown and Rachel Langford, who had said to CNN that they told 7-Eleven officials about their story.
One week after baby J’aime Brown was born, officials from 7-Eleven have pledged to start a college fund for her.
“After catching wind of the incredible news, 7-Eleven decided to pledge $7,111 to the newborn’s college fund to honor her entry to the world,” 7-Eleven told USA Today.
“Along with this pledge, the brand has also provided the family with diapers, 7-Eleven onesies and other newborn goodies to help her parents along the way,” the officials of the convenience store added.
The baby’s mother, Rachel Langford, told CNN that she repeatedly saw the numbers throughout her pregnancy.
“I thought it was weird at first, and I didn’t know that [the numbers] meant so much,” Langford said. “A lot of the times [during the pregnancy] I would look at the clock and it was 7:11.”
Langford admitted that she was ‘freaked out’ by the coincidence at first but they were doing well after delivery, according to CNN.
The girl’s father, Johntez Brown, shared adorable photos of J’aime on Facebook, calling her ‘lady lucky.’ He has been enjoying the attention of media, sharing messages on Facebook, including: “Look at my baby on tv already #Greatness,” and “Look at my star baby she on the news already love you baby.”
