The Minnesota parents of a baby girl who was born at 12:12 p.m. on Dec. 12, 2012 — 12/12/12 — say they’re planning a big 12th birthday for their daughter.

Courtney Jane Tomford was born just after noon Wednesday at Fairview Lakes Medical Center in Wyoming, Minn. She was originally due Dec. 10.

“The date is awesome, but to have the time, the stars match up is something else. She’s a special little girl,” said mother Liz Tomford several hours after her daughter’s birth.

Courtney weighed 7 pounds, 5 ounces and was 19 inches long.

Liz and her husband, Jesse Tomford, of Stacy, Minn., have two other children, 8-year-old Allyson and 2-year-old Lane.
