12 to the power of 5 in baby's Chattanooga birth

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- If Tyler Lawson Ceraolo grows up to believe in lucky numbers, his will surely be 12.

Brian and Corrie Ceraolo had planned to induce delivery, so Tyler would be born in Chattanooga on Wednesday -- the 12th day of the 12th month of 2012. What they didn't count on was that their child would arrive at 12:12 p.m., which he did.

The couple asked doctors to confirm the time of delivery, just to be certain.

Brian Ceraolo told WDEF-TV the couple isn't superstitious, but think their son's birthday is cool.

The proud father is a flight paramedic with -- you guessed it -- 12 births on his watch.

Just to be safe, Brian counted his son's fingers and toes. Ten each.
