Yesteday was a once in a lifetime day for the whole world as it was the 12th day of the 12th month of the year 2012 but it was even more special for a young Sri Lankan couple whose baby girl was born at 12.12 pm.

This rare event was reported from Ratnapura General Hospital yesterday, when Gayani Prasanthika a teacher, gave birth to a baby girl exactly at 12.12 pm.
This little girl who will go down in history was delivered by a team of doctors led by Dr. Upali Jayawardene and a group of nurses.

The baby’s father Rukman Goonetilleke said he and his wife had become the luckiest parents in the whole world. “We are proud to have our first born on such a special day and at a special time,” he said

Meanwhile, the doctors said the baby girl was in good health. (Pix and tex by Lasantha Niroshana)

    Authenticity of the timing shall be verified as our guys are expert in manipulating things to get publicised.

    However, I wish wholeheartedly for a blessed life of the child and her parents.

    mamath Thursday, 13 December 2012 03:27 AM

    short-lived, unnecessary publicity for that innocent child. We should together make the society that she will be living-in a better one rather than spending unnecessary time & energy contemplating on this kind of things.

    Nizam - Dubai Thursday, 13 December 2012 03:28 AM

    Congrats and wish you all the best for a loving, caring and a beautiful family..Mr & Mrs.Goonathilake.

    Prakash Thursday, 13 December 2012 03:27 AM

    12.12.12.12 may be ok, but the baby was born on the
    13th morning. (past midnight is the following day)

    dev Thursday, 13 December 2012 08:58 AM

    mamath Thursday, 13 December 2012 03:36 AM

    I doubt..unless she manages to marry a SON and becomes a widow

    Shiva Thursday, 13 December 2012 03:41 AM
