LOS ANGELES >> A healthy baby boy was born naturally at 11:11 a.m., on the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011 at a Southern California hospital.
Providence Holy Cross Medical Center spokeswoman Pat Aidem says Alexander David Hockaday Ruiz was born weighing 9 pounds, 4 ounces in room 1111 in the hospital’s maternity ward.
Aidem says the room assignment was simply serendipity.
Sporting Los Angeles Dodgers gear to greet news cameras, the boy has a shock of black hair.
He’s the fifth child born to Angela Hockaday.
Aidem says last year the Mission Hills-area hospital also had a baby born at 10:10 a.m. on October 10.
