One Mission Hills newborn got a special birthday Friday morning.

Not only was Alexander David Hockaday Ruiz born on 11/11/11, he arrived at 11:11 a.m. in room 1111 of Providence Holy Cross Medical Center.

"We're gonna buy lottery tickets tonight because we could get lucky tomorrow!" said father Peter Ruiz.

Angela Hockaday, the baby's mother, wanted doctors to induce labor to ensure that the baby would arrive at that time, but it turned out there was no need.
