A Minnesota mom gave birth Tuesday on an already special day: Jan. 11, 2011, or 1/11/11. But what made this birth even more spectacular is that little Flora Mensah entered the world at 1:11 a.m.Doctors said Flora's mom wasn't trying for the special birthday or time. In fact, she said she wasn't the one hoping for the one-of-a-kind birthday.

"Well it was my niece, first of all, all day who said, 'You got to hold her until midnight. Got to hold her until midnight.' And then as it got closer to midnight, 'You got to wait until 1:11," said Amy Zeller.

Doctors said Zeller didn't have to do anything special to have the 1:11 a.m. birth.
