The parents of Dane Edwards must have made a wish at 11:11, because it certainly came true when he was born at that same time on 1/11/11 in room number 11 at the Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
That's surely a lot to wrap one's head around, but the happy couple is convinced that this will be one lucky baby. Shanell Edwards told My Fox Tampa Bay that when the clock hit 11, the nurses began to joke about having an 11:11 baby.
"She was joking with us, saying it's literally 11:10 if you want to do this. I gave it one last good push and out he came. Right at 11:11. I was like, you've got to be kidding. It's amazing," she told the news source.
If only the couple could have forecasted this occurrence, as it sure would have taken the spotlight at Dane's baby shower.
To take it to its logical extreme, the Edwards could have offered guests baby shower favors with just one of each thing. Baby shower candy jars filled with one of each kind of candy, votive candles with one of each color and whole leaf tea sachet favors sampling each tea variety once would have been a riot, especially when paired with an "about to hatch" kitchen egg timer favor set to 11 seconds.
