A woman who went into 72-hour labor has won 60 years worth of free pizza after she gave her baby boy a specific name.
Clementine Oldfield from Sydney, Australia gave birth to her healthy baby boy at 1:47 am on December 9.
The happy parents named their son Dominic Julian without knowing that they would end up winning a special competition.
Domino’s Pizza in Australia offered $10,600 to the first parents who would name their child Dominique or Dominic on December 9, Daily Mail Australia reported.
Ms. Oldfield and her husband Anthony Lot went to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital three days after the Clementine was due.
They said they always loved the name Dominic and after Ms. Oldfield gave birth to her son, they received messages from their excited family members who heard about the special competition.
“My cousin, Dominique – believe it or not! – forwarded it (details of the competition) to my mum for a laugh. Mum did the same,” Mr. Lot said.
“We hadn’t really thought much about it after that as we were in the middle of a long labour and were much more concerned about ensuring the safe arrival of our little baby.”
The family submitted Dominic’s birth certificate to the pizza company, and they were later informed that they had won the cash prize.
“We couldn’t be happier! After over a week in hospital for us, and over half of that for Dominic, I think it’s safe to say that it was a little overdue,” Mr. Lot expressed.
Domino’s New Zealand and Australia CEO Nick Knight called the prize a “truly unique birthday gift.”
“We have been blessed with 60 incredible years as a company, with 37 of those here in Australia,” he said.
“We wouldn’t be celebrating this milestone without the support of our amazing customers and their faith in us to continue delivering delicious meals for great value.”
“What better way for our Domino’s family to mark this occasion and to share the joy of the next 60 years than with a truly unique birthday gift for someone’s own bundle of joy – from our family to yours!”
