Little Amelia has no choice when it comes to picking a lucky number: It's got to be 11.

The British newborn, whose full name is Amelia Grace Poppy Allen-Miles, was born at 11:11 on Nov. 11. If you're keeping score, that's four elevens.

Amelia was due 15 days earlier but decided to arrive, weighing 6lb 15oz, as the clock struck the magic mark yesterday at Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital.

Her mother, Holly Allen-Miles, 22, added the middle name of Poppy to mark Armistice Day and “to pay tribute to our brave troops,” according to the Oxford Mail.

“I have quite a few friends who are in the Navy and some who are in the Army, including soldiers in Afghanistan, and I think they are incredibly brave,” said the mom.
