While the last full moon of the decade happened on 12/12 at 12:12 a.m, a special baby in Illinois was also delivered just after midnight on Thursday.

Denarrika Fisher and Charles Bell, of Belleville, welcomed a baby boy named Denarius at exactly 12:12 a.m. on Dec. 12 (12/12) at HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in the Women and Infants Center, KSDK reports.

According to a statement from the hospital, baby Denarius was originally due Dec. 30, but he decided to come early. The little boy weighed in at 7 pounds, 4 ounces. Both he and mother are doing great.

Denarius’s parents said they didn’t even notice his special birthdate and time until the nursing staff informed them of the notable numeric event.

The final full moon of 2019 and this decade officially happened on 12/12 at 12:12 a.m. The full moon is known as the Cold Moon, or the Long Night Moon, coming as it does so close to the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year.

Congratulations to Denarius and his family!
