Born on October 10, 2010, at 10 seconds after 10 past 10 AM in Britain, Niamh Bond has been hailed as the world's luckiest baby by numerologists.

Numerologists believe the "perfect tens", which happen only once a century, symbolise a "powerful moment of rebirth".

Some even claim that Sunday was the luckiest day of the century, the Daily Mail reported.

"It's amazing and hopefully being born on what is supposed to be the luckiest day of the century will prove a lucky omen for us and for Niamh. I'm delighted. She's small but absolutely beautiful," Niamh's father Dean Bond said.

She was born weighing just four pounds after being delivered naturally at eight weeks premature at the Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands.

A digital clock in the delivery suite recorded the time of birth.

Her mother Keelie, 20, said: "When I looked at the clock and saw the ten seconds as well I was gobsmacked. It is certainly a date to remember and it is even more special as it is my first child. She is absolutely tiny and has tiny fingers. She is gorgeous."

She added: "I remember suddenly feeling the need to push. It was mad. Dean only arrived ten minutes before the head started to appear. It all happened so quickly."

Dawn Grix, delivery suite coordinator at Good Hope Hospital, said Niamh would be kept in the special care baby unit until November because she was born so prematurely.

She added: "Keelie came down fully dilated and was pushing and we suddenly realised what the time was. She was progressing really well and just before 10.10 am the head came out and then a minute passed and the rest of the body came out at exactly 10.10 am. One of the paediatricians then realised the clock was on ten seconds as well."
