KNOXVILLE (WATE) - For some parents, 12-12-12 brought a big blessing. Several babies were born at local hospitals on the special day.

The Wilson family will always remember what happened to them on the 12th day of the 12th month of the 12th year of this century.

"We was scheduled to be induced tomorrow," said mom Tabitha Wilson.

But little Callyn Ray just couldn't wait for his due date, weighing in at 7 pounds 9 ounces just after 6 a.m. His parents are happy he picked this date.

"Actually when I went to my first appointment the doctor said he was due on the 19th, but 12-12-12 would be really cool," Tabitha said.

They're excited to have this story to tell him as he grows.

"We'll just tell him he was born on a special day!" Tabitha said.

The University of Tennessee Medical Center had three babies born before 9 a.m. Fort Sanders had one, born in labor and delivery room 12, and several more expected before 12-13. 

"I was actually due next Monday," said first-time mom Victoria.

She had only briefly thought of this date as a possible birthday for her son.

"We kind of thought that would be interesting, but we thought he's probably not going to come that day. Then yesterday when I started having contractions, we thought maybe he will come today," she said.

Now her little Zachariah will also be celebrating on 12-12 every year.

Several 12-12-12 babies have been born across the state of Tennessee as well, including one baby in Chattanooga who was born at Erlanger Medical Center at 12:12 p.m., according to WTVC.

This is also a popular day for weddings. Many chapels in Gatlinburg said they were booked for multiple ceremonies Wednesday.
