A baby scored 10 out of 10 as she was born on the 10th second of the 10th minute of the 10th hour of October 10, 2010, it has been reported.
Niamh Bond was not due for another eight weeks when she popped out on Sunday weighing 3lb 7oz at the Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands.
Mum Keelie Hearne, 20, told reporters: "When I looked at the clock and even saw the 10 seconds as well I was gobsmacked.
"It is certainly a date to remember and it is even more special as it is my first child."
Elsewhere, Ngaryan Li, 28, and Steven Higham, 26, from Lowton, Lancashire, got married at Manchester Register Office, which opened specially yesterday for a handful of services.
Speaking moments after the ceremony, the bride said: "It's a Chinese tradition that a set of 10s is perfect and I don't think that we could have got a more perfect day to get married. Even the weather is good."
The couple, who both work in law, have been planning their big day for over a year after getting engaged two-and-a-half years ago as they hoped the day would bring them good luck.
According to Chinese tradition the symmetry of the date means the day is "perfect".
