(Chillicothe) -- It won't be hard for Austin Matthew Diles to remember when he was born. The 8 pound, 6 ounce son of Tiffaney and Joshua Diles of Chillicothe was born at 12:12 a.m. on Wednesday - 12/12/12.
The couple says they didn't plan it. The baby was due on December 14, but Tuesday morning Tiffaney told her husband it was time and they arrived at the hospital just before 8 a.m. They didn't even think about the 12/12/12 birth being a possibility until about 12 hours later.
"It would be cool if he held off until about Midnight, to be born on 12/12/12 - it would be an easy birthday to remember," Tiffaney said.
"Next thing we knew it was 12 a.m.,” added her husband.
Once they realized they had a healthy baby boy, along with the significance of Austin being born at 12:12 a.m. on 12/12/12, they and their labor team were elated.
“The nurses went crazy,” said Tiffaney.
Austin is the couple’s first child.
