After six days of labor, Amanda Anders delivered her baby girl just in time.
The Missoulian reports that Nicollete Brynn Anders was born to her parents Amanda and Mark Anders in Missoula, Mont., on Nov. 12, 2013, at 2:15 p.m. The numerically ordered birth date was an exciting addition to the blessed day. But the Anders got an additional surprise as they prepared to welcome their daughter into the world.
By the 24-hour clock, 2:15 p.m. is actually 1415, meaning Nicollette entered the world on 11/12/13 at 14:15. "The 11-12-13 we knew, but it wasn’t until 10 minutes before she came that we realized we could possibly have a 14-15," Amanda told The Missoulian. Mark echoed her surprise, adding the moment was “just when she happened to come” and “it wasn’t planned."
Amanda’s labor was induced six days before she gave birth to her daughter, who was nine pounds, three ounces, and 20.5 inches long at birth. Several other babies across the nation were born on Nov. 12 at 14:15 p.m. And future parents have only one more possible sequential date – 12/13/14 – until Jan. 2, 2103.
