Boston -

Noelle Joy Klinker's parents welcomed her into the world at 12.12pm on 12-12-12 after her mother was in labour for about 12 hours.

Weighing 4.1kg, the 55cm-long infant was bornon Wednesday at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston to parents Colleen and Joe Klinker.

Her proud papa, a 31-year-old Coast Guard lieutenant and public affairs officer, said the timing was mostly a coincidence. At 12.11pm, Colleen Klinker saved the final push until the clock ticked to a minute later.

Noelle's dad said her arrival was a special blessing after he and his wife lost a daughter Melody at childbirth last October. - Sapa-AP
