A baby girl was born Wednesday on 9/11 at 9:11 p.m. When she was weighed, she came in at exactly 9 pounds and 11 ounces.

Cametrione and Justin Brown welcomed their newborn baby, Christina, at a hospital in Germantown, Tennesee, where nurses with decades of experience said they’ve never seen such a coincidence occur, WREG reported.

According to the report, the couple said they arrived to the delivery room around 8:55 p.m. for a scheduled C-section.

“Time was just rolling,” Justin Brown said to WREG. “Then all of a sudden, we heard the ‘wah!’ and next thing you know, they called it 9:11 and then they got on the table and they were like, ‘Oh my gosh! She weighs 9/11!'”

The delivery doctor was shocked, Justin said.

“The doctor is excited,” Justin told WREG. “She’s like, ‘Oh my God, this is a 9/11, 9/11, 9/11 baby!’”

“Oh, I’ve never seen it in 38 years,” patient care coordinator Rachel Laughlin said to WREG. “It’s very rare but very special. It just makes her an even more special little girl than she already is.”

At the time of the report, baby Christina was in the NICU where she received extra oxygen due to minor lung issues. Her parents say she will be OK.
