Baby born at 7am on 07/07/07 ...and she's her parents' seventh child

ElizabethParents Serge and Herbethe Elie were astonished when they realised the uncanny coincidences surrounding Elizabeth's birth, which took place in - where else - delivery room seven at Birmingham's Good Hope Hospital.

Mr Elie, 37, who works for Land Rover, said: "I hope she's a good luck charm when she grows up and wins us lots of money on the lottery, bingo or the horses.

"There are sevens everywhere. This must be a good omen; it's a gift from God.

"I can't wait to tell her that she was born on such a memorable occasion. It is absolutely amazing. I'm a delighted and very happy man."

The couple, who came to Britain from the Democratic Republic of Congo seven years ago, were aware that Elizabeth was due on July 7 but didn't think much of it as their previous six children had arrived a few days either side of their expected date.

Elizabeth - who weighed 8lb 1oz at birth - was taken back to the family home in Erdington, Birmingham, with both mother and child in good health.
