HOLLY McConnell is marking a very special birthday – as she turns 12 today (12/12/12).
The Gorebridge girl will have dozens of reasons to celebrate with mum Andrewina, dad Calum and brothers Conner (19) and Sam (6) as the family gathers to wish her all the best.
And those aren’t the only twelves in Holly’s collection.
Andrewina said: “She was born just after 12am – four minutes past midnight – so there’s even a 12 in her birth time as well. It’s quite a coincidence.”
Holly, the grand-daughter of Billy and the late Flo McDonnell, from Gorebridge, and the late Martin and Mary Keenan, of Rosewell, is taking everything in her stride.
She said: “My mum told me about it two years ago, but I didn’t think it was a big deal, but she did. I’d like to be a beautician and maybe I’ll get make-up for my birthday, I don’t know.
To celebrate, I’m having a sleepover with all my pals and on the 12th it’ll be all the family.”
