Oliver arrived at 12:12 on the 12th day of 12th month of 2012
A LITTLE lad is enjoying his, erm, 12 minutes of fame – after being born at 12:12pm on the 12th day of the 12th month, 2012.
Oliver Talmage arrived today at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow, Essex, six hours after mum Hannah MacLennan went into labour.
Proud Hannah said today: “As soon as he was born the midwife came in and pointed out the timing.
“We were already celebrating and this makes it all the more special. He was due on the 18th so it’s come as a bit of a surprise.”
Hannah, an admin worker at an investment bank, and her husband, Andrew Talmage, 39, who works in car restoration, already have one son, three-year-old Jack.
They are expecting to return to their home in High Ongar, Essex, with 7lb Oliver later today.
Hannah said: “We’ve told the rest of the family the news and everybody is really happy.”
Andrew added: “We’re just delighted to have a healthy baby – anything else is just a nice extra.”
The historic six-figure alignment of dates and times is the last time such a moment will occur this century.
