The two babies born at Hudson Valley Hospital Center on December 12, 2012 made their mark on history, having the rare opportunity to be born on a triple number date that will not happen again for 89 years.
Yocasta Perez of New Rochelle and Jazmine Lassic of Peekskill excitedly held their baby boys and talked about the unique bond they will share forever.
“I was in so much pain I didn’t realize the importance of the date until after,” said Lassic. “After I held Ézan in my arms, I knew this was an extra special day.”
“My son, Nicholas, was supposed to be born on December 16, but his father knew he was going to be born on 12-12-12,” said Yocasta Perez of New Rochelle.
Both babies are happy and most importantly healthy, Ézan was born 8lbs, 12oz, 19 ½ inches long, and Nicholas was 6 lbs, 13oz and 20 ½ inches.
Wednesday was noteworthy not only for its repetition -- Dec. 12, 2012, or 12/12/12 -- but also because it's the last time this century that all three of the same numbers fall on the same date. The next time this will happen is on Jan. 1, 2101, or 01/01/2101.
