Forget winning the lottery. A unusually perfect combination of numbers led to an even bigger prize for one Iowa family: a new baby girl. Katie Deremiah and boyfriend Ryan Fitzgerald had privately joked that their upcoming baby bundle might be born on 10-11-12 to join big brother Jackson, who was born on 9-10-11. Yet even they couldn't have imagined that daughter Laila Fitzgerald would enter the world at exactly 8 lb., 9 oz. on 10-11-12. The time of her birth? A perfect 13:14 (1:14 p.m. in military time). "When I figured it out, I just thought it was crazy that all the numbers just fit into place," Deremiah told TODAY Moms. Although dad did buy a lottery ticket, mom isn't buying into the numerological significance of it all, insisting that "they're just numbers." But she does appreciate that her new daughter has a birth story worthy of headlines. "I want her to know how special she is to all of us and how her day was such a big day."
