Eighteen years after the 9/11 terror attacks, little Christina Brown brought some joy — and excitement — to this somber day in history.

Doctors at a Memphis-area hospital delivered the baby girl by C-section at 9:11 p.m. on Wednesday, September 11.

When the nurses placed her on the scales, they called out, “Oh my gosh, she weighs 9-11!” father Justin Brown said.

“The doctor is excited,” he told KTLA sister station WREG in Memphis. “She’s like, ‘Oh my God, this is a 9/11, 9/11, 9/11 baby!'”

Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown Hospital confirmed the incredible coincidence on social media.

The post quoted mom Cametrione Malone-Brown, who reflected on the importance of that day.

“We had emotions and we felt it,” she said. “Then 18 years later on that day 9/11, you find triumph; you find a piece of joy from a day that was so drastic and still hurts.”

“I’ve never seen it in 38 years,” said Rachel Laughlin, the parent care coordinator. “It just makes her a more special little girl than she is.”

Hospital officials said that Christina is in good condition and will be going home in a few days.
