Ella The 8-9-10-11-12 Baby Coincidence

Baby coincidence of Ella Rose Riehle

I like number coincidences so I thought I'd publish this one even though it's about three years old.

This goes back to 2010 when Terri Riehler was pregnant. The date was 8/9/10 when she was taken to Christ Hospital, Ohio for the birth. She is quoted as saying, "I'm like 'Oh! Easy! I won't get my kids birthdays' mixed up.' 8/9/10 - It'll be easy to remember, good to go!"

Her doctor, Peggy Heis, pointed out how remarkable it would be if Terri's baby was born at 11:12. Then there would be a sequence of 8-9-10-11-12. But babies aren't predictable and the morning came and went, still no baby.

Twelve hours later, just before 11 pm. that night, the labour really started getting intense. Terri was pushing but still no baby.

But finally, her baby, Ella Rose Riehle, was born at, yes, exactly 11.12 pm.

Birth coincidence confirmation

Ella is therefore unlikely to forget her birthday and neither will any of her family.

  1. I remember reading this one. It blew me away then and still does. What are the odds??

  2. And I have a sister, the sixth child, who was born on 6/6/66, and weighed 6 pounds and some. But I don't know for sure what time she was born. Will have to ask my mom if she remembers. And to top it all off, she's left handed, and a little weird!
