TORONTO -- The birth of a baby boy is being hailed as a “lunar coincidence” after he was delivered at 12:12 a.m. on Dec. 12 – the same time the last full moon of the decade rose in the sky.

The healthy baby boy, named Denarius, was born in O’Fallon, Ill. two weeks before his mother’s expected due date at seven pounds, four ounces.

“He was originally due on December 30 but decided to come early for this numeric and lunar coincidence,” read a birth announcement posted to HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital’s website.

Known as the cold moon, the last full moon of the decade also reached its fullest point at 12:12 a.m. on Dec. 12.

According to the hospital, Denarius’ mother, Denarrika Fisher, didn’t realize the coincidence until the nursing staff pointed it out when noting the birth information.
