2019, July 11: The 7/11 Birth


Proud parents! [Larger version here]

There's no denying that baby J'Aime Brown's birth was something special.

        She was born in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, on July 11, 2019, to Johntez Brown and Rachel Langford at 7:11PM... and she weighed 7 lbs, 11 oz. So that's three "7/11"'s, remembering that July is the seventh month of the year!

        The odds of such a conjunction is astronomical, so I suspected a reporter of taking liberties to make the numbers match; but the card in the crib confirms the hospital agrees with the time and weight given above, so it's a remarkable coincidence.

        In a later interview with CNN, Rachel Langford claimed she "kept seeing the numbers 7 and 11 during her pregnancy," but didn't see it as significant at the time. She claimed to be a little "freaked out" by the matter still, but also said she was planning on telling the convenience store chain called '7-Eleven' about the weird occurrence... hoping for free slurpies, perhaps?

Update!

        It was certainly worth contacting the 7-Eleven convenience chain about J'aime Brown's birth... it was reported on June 19 that the store chain's corporate offices donated a number of baby care goods to the family -- including, not surprisingly, some "7-Eleven" onesies -- and then also -- surprisingly -- started a college fund for the newborn with $7,111!
