Chicago couple welcome baby born at 12:12 on 12-12-12

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

There's a saying that timing is everything and that couldn't be more true than for a Chicago family whose daughter was born on 12/12/2012, at exactly 12:12 p.m.

"It didn't strike me until the baby was born and the doctor and the nurse were talking and they started screaming and all the staff members came in here and I was like, `what's going on?' And they were like `oh she was born at 12:12 and it's 12-12-12' and I was like, `well okay," father Marcos Hernandez explained.

This is a special day for the Hernandez family with little Lexi arriving at just the right time.

"I was just in pain and I wanted the baby to come out, when doctors told me what time it was we were all surprised," said Sharon Hernandez.

It was even a special day for the team at Swedish Covenant Hospital.

"We didn't plan it," said Dr. Mary Conte. "Or clock was actually fast, we thought we missed it and it wasn't until after the baby was born that we realized she actually picked her time and wanted to come out and make it special."

Marcos knows the novelty of it all won't hit Lexi for years.

"Not till she's much older, and even then she'll probably just try to use it to get something out of me,

But that's okay with him, because daughter number three is much more than a number.

When asked if Lexi is going to be one of twelve kids, Sharon chuckled, saying, "No, no, I'd say we're done. No more."
