(FOX) — A couple who welcomed their daughter on the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks was shocked when the baby arrived at 9:11 p.m. and weighed 9 pounds, 11 ounces.
Cametrione and Justin Brown arrived at Methodist LeBonheur Germantown Hospital in Tennessee on Wednesday evening for a scheduled C-section.
It was around 8:55 p.m. when Cametrione entered the delivery room to welcome her little girl.
At exactly 9:11 p.m., Christina Brown was born – weighing exactly 9 pounds, 11 ounces
“Time was just rolling,” the newborn’s father, Justin, told local news station WREG. “The 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 [pounds], 11 [ounces].’”
“It’s very rare but very special. It just makes her an even more special little girl than she already is,” Rachel, Laughlin, a patient coordinator at Methodist LeBonheur Germantown Hospital, told the news station.
“I’ve never seen it in 38 years,” she noted.
Though the couple recognized 9/11 is a time of remembrance and sorrow for the country, they noted their daughter represents joy on such a day.
“She comes in on 9/11, there was so much devastation but she’s bringing all this joy and life into the world because everybody’s been waiting on her,” Cametrione told The Commerical Appeal.
