No doubt, 12 will be her lucky number

JACKSONVILLE, Texas —

They already are calling the little girl “The Perfect 12”.

She was born on Dec. 12, 2012. But that’s not all. The time of her delivery was 12:12 p.m.

So far the family has declined to publicly  identify the infant.

Dr. Charles Burke was the delivering physician. His office manager, Judy Martin, said the baby was the third child born to her parents.  She “is doing beautifully” despite being delivered several days early than expected, Martin said.

She said Burke realized the signifcance of the birth date. “It's kind of funny, thinking about it, but Dr. Burke is a big numbers guy – he was married on 8-08-88,” she laughed.
