NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Friday could be your lucky day. The numbers are all lined up — 11/11/11 — and at least one Manhattan couple is taking advantage.

As CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez found out, they are scheduled to deliver twins.

Shortly after their wedding last fall, Ahna Tessler and John Harrison decided they wanted to start a family.

A quick pregnancy was just the beginning of their lucky streak. Ahna’s first sonogram was a shocker.

“I was like … I don’t know what that is. And she goes ‘one, two … two baby! You have two baby,’” Tessler said.

And talk about hitting the baby jackpot!

“Everyone’s like … you’re blessed; you’re blessed. It’s a boy and a girl. It’s amazing,” Tessler said.

Ahna’s doctors said although she’s due Nov. 25, she couldn’t carry her twins to term and needed to schedule a C-section. As luck would have it, Ahna chose to have the two little “ones” on Nov. 11 – 11/11/11.

“Twins … it wasn’t in the cards for us. And I felt so out of control. And so this is one thing I have control over … is to chose their birth date, which is going to be so cool for them to do for the rest of their lives, and just writing 11/11/11,” Tessler said.

So Ahna will be delivering her 11/11/11 babies Friday morning at what time?

Nine. You can’t always push your luck.

The couple has already named their twins, Elliot and Madeline.
