Yesterday marked a special day for new parents all over the country. According to reports, several couples welcomed their little bundles into the world at exactly 12:12 on 12/12/12 — how fun! So far, here’s what we know:

In Auburn Township, Ohio, Frank and Cierra Smith and big brother Caden welcomed daughter Forever Cierra Cotrice Smith into the world at 12:12 p.m. on 12/12/12.

Also in Ohio, Tiffaney Diles went into early labor on 12/11 and started thinking about the possibility of having a 12/12/12 baby. Hours later, Austin Matthew Diles would arrive at 12:12 a.m. and forever mark the date for his overwhelmed parents.

At Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Colleen and Joe Klinker added daughter Noelle Joy Klinker at 12:12 p.m. To top things off, Colleen was in labor for 12 hours! The day marked an extra special occasion for Noelle’s mom and dad, who had, a year ago, lost daughter Melody during childbirth.

In St. Genevieve, Mo., Jennifer Oehlert gave birth to a handsome baby boy named Kaiden Derone. The hospital staff celebrated by showering the blessed parents with a dozen presents.

A mother celebrated in Fremont, Nebraska with an adorable baby girl, Zoey.

Reports are also surfacing that an as yet unnamed baby girl was born to Michael and Olivia Patterson of Manhattan.

But the true star of the day was little babe Carson Hurricane Turner, who was proudly brought into this world by parents Debbie and Joe Turner — two survivors of Superstorm Sandy out of Brick, New Jersey.

Congratulations to all of the excited parents and their beautiful babies!
