What might be a digital dream for numerologists has come true in the delivery room of a Des Moines hospital.

Laila Fitzgerald was born.

The Des Moines Register reports that Laila weighed 8 pounds, 9 ounces. She came into the world on Thursday, which, numerically speaking, was 10/11/12. She arrived, militarily speaking, at 1314, which would be 1:14 p.m. for civilians.

So the numbers associated with her birth are 8-9-10-11-12-13-14.

Laila's mother, 26-year-old Katie Deremiah, of Des Moines, says she had a feeling Thursday would be the day, despite the due date of Oct. 19.

She says Laila arrived without inducements to speed her arrival.

Laila's father, 26-year-old Ryan Fitzgerald, told The Register that he would be buying a lottery ticket as soon as he could leave the hospital.
