London: Born exactly on 10 October 2010 at 10:10:10, Niamh Bond is nothing less than a nature’s miracle.
Numerologists believe the `perfect tens`, which happen only once a century, symbolise a `powerful moment of rebirth`. Some claim yesterday was the luckiest day of the century.
“It`s amazing and hopefully being born on what is supposed to be the luckiest day of the century will prove a lucky omen for us and for Niamh. I`m delighted. She`s small but absolutely beautiful,” The Daily Mail quoted father Dean Bond, as saying.
Niamh was born at Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands eight weeks premature weighing just 3lb 7oz
“Keelie came down fully dilated and was pushing and we suddenly realised what the time was. She was progressing really well and just before 10.10am the head came out and then a minute passed and the rest of the body came out at exactly 10.10am,” said Dawn Grix, delivery suite coordinator at Good Hope Hospital.
“One of the paediatricians then realised the clock was on ten seconds as well,” she added.
It was supposed to be such a lucky date that some couples arranged Caesarean sections especially so their babies would be born yesterday.
But Niamh Bond arrived on the tenth day of the tenth month of 2010 all by herself - and at ten seconds after ten past ten as well.
“When I looked at the clock and saw the ten seconds as well I was gobsmacked,” said mum Keelie Hearne.
“It is certainly a date to remember and it is even more special as it is my first child. She is absolutely tiny and has tiny fingers. She is gorgeous.”
