The last full moon of this decade wasn’t the only beautiful site to be seen this week. 

Two lucky parents welcomed a baby boy at 12:12 a.m. on 12/12. HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in O'Fallon, Illilois said Denarrika Fisher and Charles Bell's newborn son, Denarius, weighed 7 pounds, 4 ounces, and that mom and baby were doing well. 

Denarius was originally due on December 30 but "decided to come early for the numeric and lunar coincidence," the hospital said in a statement

Mom didn't realize the date and time coincidence, but the hospital said the nursing staff did when they noted the birth information when the baby was delivered.

The "Cold Moon" became full on 12/12 and 12:12 a.m. in the eastern time zone.
