Hospital workers and parents alike were shocked when 19 baby boys were delivered in a row at the University of Minnesota Medical Center Fairview this weekend.
The baby boy streak began at 9 p.m. on Friday and didn't stop until 7 a.m. Monday, reported the Pioneer Press. "I'm calling it a statistical marvel," said Lisa Archer, a nurse manager at the hospital.
The odds of 19 boys being born in a row are one in 524,288, reported the Star Tribune. Hospital officials said Monday that they couldn't recall another time when they've had so many baby boy deliveries in a row.
The streak ended Monday at 7:30 a.m. with the birth of a little girl named Ladan Ibrahim, the second daughter for Mohammed Guled and Naima Bashir, reported the Star Tribune. Guled, the owner of a Bloomington-based diaper company, was so awed by the all-boy deliveries that he decided to donate three months' worth of diapers to the families of all 19 boys.
