Langford, who is a mom to a 6-year-old boy, said she kept seeing the numbers 7 and 11 repeatedly during her pregnancy, but she did not make much of it at the time.
7-Eleven day is typically celebrated across the U.S. because that's the one day that everyone can get their hands on free Slurpees, but this year's 7-Eleven day was literally special for one family from Missouri. Rachel Langford from St. Louis gave birth to an adorable baby girl on July 11th, reports CNN. Yep, 7-Eleven. There's nothing special about that, now, and I agree, but before you jump the gun, the baby girl was born at 7:11 pm. Now, that's a coincidence, right? But, there's MORE! Baby girl J'Aime Brown weighed seven pounds and 11 ounces at birth. You may freak out over this piece of information now. (I know I did.)
Someone buy this baby a lottery ticket -- and at 7-Eleven! https://t.co/n6E9pkTBxs— FOX 32 News (@fox32news) July 13, 2019
Langford, who is a mom to a six-year-old boy, said she kept seeing the numbers 7 and 11 repeatedly during her pregnancy, but she did not make much of it at the time. "I thought it was weird at first, and I didn't know that (the numbers) meant so much," she said. "A lot of the times (during the pregnancy) I would look at the clock and it was 7:11." Although a bit "freaked out," both baby and mother are healthy and doing well.
This coincidence is not something that happens every time, and Langford says she plans on telling the convenience store chain about it. Wonder if J'Aime Brown will have to wait for 7-Eleven day for Free Slurpees or will she get them all year round? So, once the story was published, it went viral. One woman took the opportunity to share the news of her own son's birth, but she said that her son barely made it.

Lisa Deakin Wilson shared her own sister's experience: It's funny what she says about the clock. My cousin, who wasn't pregnant, told me she kept seeing 9:11 and it was freaking her out because she thought her son was in danger of experiencing an emergency. It lasted until 9/11. She never thought it was a date. Pregnancy sure is a funny thing!
Those kids should buy some lottery tickets. Amazing story!— Papou’ (@john_papou) July 15, 2019
Kathy Martinez is yet another triple luck: I was born on 8/4, 8:04 am and weighed 8lbs 4oz. Hrh Prince Jon Wright added: Congratulations What a wonderful story God Bless and welcome to the world little angel baby. Candice Hatch thinks: That baby should get free small Slurpees for life from 7-Eleven. We couldn't agree more! Some people even said that J'Aime should be nicknamed Slurpee! What do you think of that?
