Born on the 10s

Logan and Courtney Beckman with their newborn son, Hudson Miles, who was born at 10 a.m. on 10/10/10 at Woodwinds Hospital, which is marking its 10th anniversary this year.

Logan and Courtney Beckman's first child was due Oct. 8, but they were well aware that their child's birth date could end up 10/10/10.

The Prior Lake couple arrived at Woodwinds Hospital in Woodbury Saturday afternoon.

Courtney pushed for about 50 minutes Sunday morning and delivered a healthy Hudson Miles Beckman at 10 a.m., making it a 10 a.m. birth on 10/10/10.

"That was not planned," said Courtney, 27.

Logan added: "She was not waiting until 10:10."

The couple said the timing of the birth was pure coincidence.

"The funny thing was no one looked at the clock," Logan said.

Another number coincidence: Woodwinds is marking its 10th anniversary this year.

Logan also joked that his newborn son "was the multiples of seven" because he weighed 7 pounds 14 ounces and was 21 inches long.
