7-Eleven Day typically means free Slurpees for everyone, but this year’s celebration turned out more special than usual for one Missouri family.

小七日通常意味可以免費喝思樂冰,但對(美國)密蘇里州的這家人來說,今年的小七日慶祝活動比平常來得更特別。

Rachel Langford of St. Louis gave birth to a baby girl on July 11 - yes, 7/11.

聖路易市的瑞秋.蘭格福德在7月11日,沒錯,就是小七日,生下一名女嬰。

That’s not all, baby J’Aime Brown was born at 7:11 pm, weighing seven pounds and 11 ounces.

但這還沒完。小女嬰潔米.布朗生於晚間7點11分,體重7磅11盎司。

Langford, who also has a six-year-old son, told CNN she kept on seeing the numbers 7 and 11 during her pregnancy, but didn’t think it meant anything.

還有一個6歲大的兒子的蘭格福德告訴有線電視新聞網,她在懷孕期間不斷看到7與11這兩個數字,但當時並不覺得這有什麼特殊意涵。

"I thought it was weird at first, and I didn’t know that (the numbers) meant so much," she said. "A lot of the times (during the pregnancy) I would look at the clock and it was 7:11."

「我一開始是覺得怪怪的,當時並不知道這(些數字)意義重大,」她說。「我(在懷孕期間)有好多次看向時鐘時,(鐘上的)時間是7點11分。」

Although a bit "freaked out," both mom and baby are doing well.

雖然有點「嚇到」,但母女均安。
