ODESSA - Sunday marked the 10th day of the 10th month in the year 2010. 
And on the day of identical numbers, a special birth has everyone in the Odessa Regional Medical Center talking. 

When Cheridan and Duane Fulgham planned the birth of their new baby boy on 10/10/10, they had no idea what else they were in store for.

But as it turns out, little Deegan Fulgham was born on 10/10/10 at 10:10 am. 
As if those coincidences weren't enough, Deegan came into this world in delivery room 10. 
The proud mother and father say they were just as surprised as anyone when the doctors told them. 
The delivery went off without a hitch, with no complications whatsoever. 
Little Deegan was snoozing peacefully when NewsWest 9 arrived at the Odessa Regional Medical Center. 
Aside from the unique birthday bragging rights, the parents are treating this phenomenon as a positive sign for Deegan.

"Sure, of course," explained Cheridan, Deegan's mother. "Maybe 10 will turn out to be his lucky number. Maybe on his 10th birthday something special will happen or something like that, you never know."

The Odessa Regional Medical Center said they were happy to be the home of such a miraculous birth.

The parents are also big motorcycle enthusiasts so they say Deegan's first dirt bike will have the number 10.
