Baby Niall marks a special arrival for Credenhill
12:03pm Friday 20th December 2013 in News
A BABY made a particularly well-timed entrance into the world last week.
Niall OIiver Harvard was born at Hereford County Hospital at 9.10am last Wednesday.
Or, to put it another way, at 9.10am on the 11th day of the 12th month in 2013.
The run from nine to 13 may have mathematicians and statisticians scratching their heads to find out when such a similar sequence could happen again, but proud parents Marc and Jenny are simply celebrating the birth of their son.
"We always wanted him to arrive on that date and we always had it mind because of the numbers involved," said Marc at his Credenhill home.
"Jenny went into labour on the Monday, so we are glad that he came on the Wednesday.
"And the fact that he was born at 9.10am makes it even more special.
"I've got a bit of obsessive compulsive disorder and I think Niall has too."
Marc, who is 26 and works as a programmer at allpay, said that the time of Niall's arrival left a lot of people speechless.
"My family and hospital staff knew the significance of the birth, but they still couldn't believe it," added Marc.
