Imagine the Odds! Baby Born at 11:11a.m. on 11-11-11

The little girl is the first child for the lucky family.

And so it was.

On November 11, 2011, at 11:11a.m., little Isabella Aurora Reyes was born, seven pounds, 13 ounces of beauty. She came into the world measuring 19.5 inches, a natural birth.

Born at Kaiser Permanente on Cottle Road in San Jose, the child is the first for parents Carlos and Tanya Reyes.

"When it got close to the 11-11 thing, everyone was getting pretty excited," said father Carlos Reyes. "She's about a week early."

"I figured she was going to come the following week," said Tanya, "so it was a total surprise."

Carlos and Tanya have been married four years, and live in San Jose.

"I couldn't see anymore; I was just in a lot of pain, just trying to get through it," said Tanya.

Mom went into labor at 12:30a.m. Isabella decided to show herself about 11 hours later.

Carlos continued, "It's a good story to tell her. She came out demanding to tell us what time she wanted to come out and everything. Waited to come out at 11:11, on 11-11. It was her choice; she could have come out sooner or later."

Tanya's parents, Aurora and Alfredo Quintana, who live in Milpitas, were more than a little excited. Said Aurora "It's a miracle."
