At least three were born at 12:12 p.m. on Wednesday. Or 12:12 p.m., 12-12-12.
The first of twins born to Mike and Holly Seehusen made his grand entrance then at Des Moines' Mercy Medical Center. Baby Owen's sister, Elyse, arrived four minutes later.
Down the hall from Seehusen's room, Candice Richter was happy her son had arrived, if a little late. Richter says Gage was supposed to be delivered by cesarean section a little after 11 a.m. But Richter told station KCCI (http://bit.ly/W8qs7w) that the procedure "just got pushed back, and that's just the way it happened."
Officials say a baby in Iowa City also arrived on Wednesday at 12:12 p.m. One in Davenport was delivered at home at 12:12 a.m.
The pastor of the Little Brown Church in Nashua reports that six couples had reserved the church for wedding ceremonies on 12-12-12. One couple months ago reserved the noon hour for their ceremony. Couples from Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota exchanged nuptials.
