NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — It was a day to remember — Tuesday the 22nd of February, 2022, written as 2/22/22. The date is a palindrome, something that reads the same forward as it does backward.

But for some Middle Tennessee families, the day had an extra special meaning.

Little Josie Lever was born at Ascension Saint Thomas hospital in Nashville on Tuesday morning at 17 inches long, weighing 6 pounds, 14 ounces.

She is the second child to Shelby and Joey Lever. The proud parents say they chose the date because 2/22/22 had a nice ring to it. "I think she already has her ball numbers and stuff picked out, right? She's going to have to be No. 22, the pageant number is 22, anything is going to be 22," said Shelby.

TriStar also welcomed several babies, some dressed in "twosday" onesies.
