This baby girl’s birth date is considered one of the luckiest on record.

Little Ivy May James arrived four days late but on 12.12.12 - the last triple number sequence date of the century

Her mum Jade, from Savile Park in Halifax, has named the 7lb 10 oz tot after her great, great grandmother, who passed away this summer.

Jade, a retail assistant in Top Shop, Huddersfield, said: “It is amazing to have such a special birthday.

“My dad guessed she would be a 12.12.12 baby. It’s also Frank Sinatra’s birthday - my dad’s favourite singer.

“We are over the moon and the midwives here have been absolutely lovely. They are fantastic.”

The date was expected to see a huge increase in the number of weddings in parts of the world as it is considered lucky.
