A baby girl born in St. Paul over the weekend will have a quirky fact to tell her friends for the rest of her life.

That's because the newborn was delivered at 11:11 p.m. on Sunday, November 11, or 11:11 on 11/11 (unless you're using military time, but that's just less fun).

The proud parents are Erin and Mike Potts, of Hugo, Minnesota, who said that the timing wasn't planned.

Erin was in labor for more than 18 hours before finally giving birth at the Mother Baby Center at United and Children's Minnesota.

"It was a long labor from about 5 a.m. until 11 p.m., but the delivery went smoothly," said Erin Potts in a release from Allina Health.

"It's our first child and delivering on the Armistice anniversary wasn't anything we had thought about. In fact, we didn't realize that until today (Monday)"

The baby girl weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces and was 21 inches long.

As of right now she's still without a name, with the Potts not knowing what the baby's sex would be until she was born. While they have a list of names in mind, they haven't settled on one.
