A daughter was born to Rachel Langford and Johntez Brown of Missouri on Thursday, July 11 at 7:11 p.m. And in yet another lucky coincidence, the baby girl named J’Aime Brown, weighed 7 lbs. and 11 oz.
Langford, who also has a 6-year-old son, told CNN that she kept on seeing the numbers 7 and 11 while she was pregnant but didn’t think it meant anything at the time.
“I thought it was weird at first, and I didn’t know that (the numbers) meant so much,” she told the news outlet. “A lot of the times [during the pregnancy] I would look at the clock and it was 7:11.”
Calling her newborn daughter “lady lucky”, Brown shared photos of J’Aime on Facebook. Langford says she even plans to tell 7-Eleven officials about the coincidence.

“The family says that Fourth of July festivities will never be the same,” officials at Mercy Medical wrote in a Facebook post. “Grandpa, moms and babies are all doing great!”
