In what her parents hope is a good omen, Scarlett Anne Lowe(above) was born at 12.12pm on December 12, 2012.
It was the last triple date sequence of the century, and Scarlett's birth at Auckland Hospital yesterday even managed to align the time down to the minute.
Scarlett's father, Nick Lowe, said it had come as a surprise.
"We didn't really realise it - but then I looked up at the clock at the hospital," he said.
Mr Lowe's wife, Sally, was set to be induced early in the day, so the couple knew it was a possibility.
"We joked about it in the morning but we didn't think it would actually happen."
About half an hour before the birth, Mr Lowe said he had noticed the time was getting close - but it was far from their minds when Scarlett was actually born.
Their midwife and the hospital's nurses soon picked up on the coincidence and joined in celebrating.
