There are a handful of children out there who have been born on wildly coincidental dates, and the latest to do so has made international headlines.

Carter was born on March 21st at 3:21 pm in the Florida's 321 area code. His parents won't be forgetting that in a hurry, will they?

"They announced the time of birth at 15:21 in military time. I'm sitting there laying and going through my head, and I said, 'It's 3:21.'"

It didn't take long for the coincidence to catch on.

She explained:

"My mom said, 'You just had your baby on 3/21 at 3:21.' Then my doctor said, 'And you're in the area code 321!'"

And, to make this story even stranger...

Health First OB/GYN Dr. Vanessa Dance pointed out that Carter was also born on the Space Coast near Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, where NASA crews count 3-2-1 before launching.

What're the chances?
