MUSKEGON, Mich (WZZM) -- The parents of a baby boy in Muskegon will never forget the numeric significance of their new son's birthday.

Josh and Kristen Mead gave birth Thursday morning to Oran Mead. He arrived four days early, making his birthday 10/11/12. On top of that, Oran was born just seven minutes shy of an even more unique string of consecutive numbers.

"Thenurses were like 'do not push.' Then a doctor came running in and said 'push!' He was born at 8:02 a.m., seven minutes short of 8:09 10/11/12," says proud father, Josh Mead.

The Meads have close friends who had their child on 11/11/11.
