For the first time on record, a baby has been born with pitch perfect numerical alignment.

Laila Fitzgerald, born in a Des Moines hospital, has the numbers 8-9-10-11-12-13-14 in numerical order associated with her arrival.

Weighing eight pounds, nine ounces, Laila came into the world on Thursday, a date which numerically read 10/11/12, at 1314 on a 24-hour clock.

Laila’s mother, Katie Deremiah, 26, had a due date of October 19.

But when she started having contractions Tuesday, she had a feeling she
might repeat her son Jackson's recent numerically lucky birth date -he was born on
September 10, 2011, also known as 9/10/11.

'We had a feeling it was going to be today,' Ms Deremiah told The Register at Iowa Methodist Medical Center.

The birth was natural, with no inducements to speed it up.

Laila's father, 26-year-old Ryan Fitzgerald, said he would buy a lottery ticket as soon as he left the hospital, before pondering whether the family could have a third numerical birth.

'11/12/13, and then 12/13/14 – two more shots,' he said. 'I don’t know if that’s going to happen.'

Last year, a baby Dane Edwards was born at Sarasota Memorial Hospital on January 11 at 11.11pm in delivery room 11, leaving his numerical birth at 1-11-11-11-11-11.

Dane was due January 18, but doctors decided they needed to induce a week early.
