Ben Muessig - ... Zeller told MyFoxTwinCities.com that numerology wasn't the first thing on her mind when she checked into United Hospital, even though her niece had been urging her to "hold her until midnight."But when the clock struck 1 a.m., Zeller said, doctors and nurses in the delivery room started focusing on that one magic number.
"Five minutes after, six minutes after, the doctor came in and he was like, 'The nurses are pulling -- we've got six minutes,'" Zeller said.
"The closer we got, I was like, 'It's going to happen,'" she told KARE11.com.
And it did. Flora was born at 1:11 a.m. on the dot, weighing 9 pounds, 11.5 ounces, and measuring 21.5 inches long. Both she and her mother are reportedly doing fine.
Though it might seem like one story that's too over the top to be true, Zeller insists that Flora was born at 1:11 a.m. and that there "was no fudging it at all." In fact, she says she was the only person who wasn't focusing on the timing.
"That's what everyone else was rooting for -- I just did what I was told."
