WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - Thousands of Wisconsinites wore Aaron Rodgers’ shirts to celebrate the 12-12-12 day.
But a babies in Waukesha and Green Bay took things one step further. Trae Roger Allen was born at Aurora BayCare Medical Center at 12:12 p.m. Wednesday to a De Pere couple.
The 6lb, 7oz baby boy wasn't due until the 27th, but apparently he decided that was just too long to wait.
"Little bit early, but we're happy for that. Not so close to Christmas," Shanna Allen told FOX 11.
"All of a sudden it was two big pushes and they lifted him up and looked at the clock and it was 12:12:40 and that was it," said his father Roger Allen.
In Waukesha, Teagan George Hoeffler entered the world at 12:12 p.m. Wednesday.
His mother Holli insists it was not planned. She said it was the baby who had the plan to, “hit that cool day.” Teagan had been due Wednesday – and his mother was scheduled to have induced labor on Friday.
But the labor pains started, and Holli made it to Waukesha Memorial Hospital around 3 a.m. Wednesday. She started pushing for the baby at 12:06 – and he came out six minutes later.
Holli and her husband Jon had only thought it would be nice to have the child on Aaron Rodgers’ Day – and they even thought about naming the baby after the Packers’ quarterback. But their game plan was to name the child Teagan – and that’s what they went with.
