Lucky 12 for local couple

Madeline Jean's family will never forget her birthday, on December 12, 2012.

Last Wednesday — the 12th day of the 12th month of 2012 — proved to be an especially lucky day for one Deniliquin couple.

Bridgette Cunningham and Craig Woolston welcomed their second child, baby Madeline Jean, at 9:41am Wednesday morning at Deniliquin Hospital.

The couple says their family is thrilled with Madeline’s birthday.

Bridgette said she only realised the significance of the date about ‘‘four hours’’ before Madeline was born and that both parents are ‘‘over the moon’’ about the newest addition to their family.

‘‘She was a little bit overdue,’’ Bridgette said.

‘‘She was meant to be born on December 7 and we hadn’t even thought about it,’’ Bridgette said.

Madeline is a sister for 18 month-old Jorja.

With fingers crossed Deni’s newest baby might even get to see the special date again, which won’t come around until next century — 12-12-2112!
