United Hospital Center Welcomes 12/12/2012 Baby

Posted: Updated:

If you looked at your calendar Wednesday you may have noticed something special about the date: 12/12/12.

We'll have to wait until the next century to see another instance where the month, day and year match.

It's a special day for a mom in Harrison County, who gave birth to a baby girl Wednesday at 10:03 a.m.

Rebekah and Justin Leggett welcomed Mercaides Lyn, who came into this world at seven pounds, seven ounces.

"I didn't even think about it until they said the news people were coming because it was 12/12/12," said Rebekah Leggett. "It's cool, it won't happen for another 100 years."

Just in case you're wondering, the next time the day, month and year will match is January 1, 2101.
