Born on October 10, 2010, at 10 seconds after 10 past 10 AM in Britain, Niamh Bond has been hailed as the world's luckiest baby by numerologists.

Numerologists believe the "perfect tens", which happen only once a century, symbolise a "powerful moment of rebirth". Some even claim Sunday was the luckiest day of the century, the Daily Mail reported.

"It's amazing and hopefully being born on what is supposed to be the luckiest day of the century will prove a lucky omen for us and for Niamh.She's small, but absolutely beautiful," Niamh's father Dean Bond said.

She was born weighing just four pounds after being delivered naturally at eight weeks premature at the Good Hope, Hospital in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands. A digital clock in the delivery suite recorded the time of birth.

Her mother Keelie, 20, said: "When I looked at the clock and saw the ten seconds as well I was gobsmacked."
