Meet the boy who turns 12 on 12/12/12

London, December 12 (ANI): Today is a very special day for a boy named Jack Kelly as he celebrates turning 12 on the 12th of the 12th in 2012.

More surprisingly, Jack was also born at 12 minutes to 12 in the morning.

His lucky number is 12 and that has come true, as there will be no lessons as his teachers are having a training day.

"We've all been waiting for this birthday for a long time because all the 12s come together," the Daily Express quoted football-mad Jack, who attends Newbold Community School in Chesterfield, as saying.

"I'll be able to enjoy my birthday all day without lessons. Twelve is my lucky number and you don't get luckier than having a day off school on your birthday," he added.

Mother Diane, 43, a primary school volunteer, said: "When he turned 11 we became aware of all the 12s coming together this year. It doesn't happen to people very often.

"It doesn't seem 12 minutes since Jack was born, let alone 12 years and we're all looking forward to a very special day," she stated.

His father Shaun, a 46-year-old technical officer, added: " I'm going to let him pick my lottery numbers. It might bring us some luck." (ANI)
