Celebrating a Memorable Birthday – Born on 12/12/12

12-12-12 baby

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — It won’t be hard for people to remember Tyler’s birthday, 12-12-12. It could have turned out as 12-11-12, though.

“At four o’clock, I was having contractions about every two minutes,” said the mother, Heather LeMay. “I was on a fetal monitor at my doctor’s office. And she told me, okay, you’re ready. You’re starting labor. You can go now if you want. And I told her, no, I’m going to wait. I ‘m going to try and get as close to midnight as I can, cause I want 12/12/12. If I can do it, I want to do it.”

LeMay and Jason Kelley ended up going to Baystate Medical Center at 11:30 Tuesday night, but Tyler didn’t want to make it too easy on his mom.

Little Tyler waited until 9:38 a.m. to finally enter this world.

“I’m happy,” said the father, Jason Kelley. “Can’t be any happier. It’s just one of those days. It’s a special day.”

“There’s only a few people that can say my birthday is on 12/12/12 because it’s never going to happen again in anybody else’s lifetime,” said LeMay. “So for him, he can say, he’s one of the very few.”

By noon time, there had been two other babies born at Baystate Medical Center, also part of that 12-12-12 club.
