Born at 9:09 on 9/9/09

number-9To all those people who lined up at City Hall to be married on 9/9/09, you’ve just been topped. A mom in Queens gave birth to her baby girl at 9:09 a.m. on, you guessed it, Sept. 9.

And no, it wasn’t a planned birth. Isabella Villagomez arrived on her own, two days after mom Maria’s due date at a hospital in Flushing, NY.

The numerically auspicious date and time don’t come with gifts (a la the New Year’s Baby), but who couldn’t use a little bit of extra luck?

Numerical coincidences at birth run high in my family – I was born at 2:27 a.m., and my father’s birthday is 2/27. One relative was born of 5/25/25, and then there’s the 7/11 baby.

Too bad I don’t play the lottery – there’s plenty of fodder. Does your family have luck with numbers?
