TYLER, TX (KLTV) - For a lot of folks, seven is a lucky number, but at least one very new East Texan will probably be picking a different number on her lottery tickets for the rest of her life. Bridget Speerly of Lindale was born Wednesday morning, in the ninth hour of the ninth day of the ninth month of 2009. The baby was actually due a few days from now, but doctors wanted to deliver Wednesday.

"You know...I'm not really a superstitious person, but we'll see," said Keith Speerly, Bridget's dad. "It's easy to remember, that's for sure."

Bridget is one of the four babies born so far at Mother Francis Wednesday. There were three born at ETMC, and a baby born at 9:09 at ETMC's Jacksonville location.
