ST. LOUIS (WTHR) — A "lucky" baby born on 7/11 in St. Louis is getting a big gift from 7-Eleven.

J'Amie Brown was born at 7:11 p.m. on July 11 to Rachel Langford and Johntez Brown. What's more, she weighed in at seven pounds, 11 ounces.

News of her birth quickly caught the attention of the nation, who connected her to the convenience store chain.

Friday, 7-Eleven announced they'll put $7,111 in J'Amie's college fund, among other gifts.

“Along with this pledge, the brand has also provided the family with diapers, 7-Eleven onesies and other newborn goodies to help her parents along the way," a spokeswoman for the stores told the New York Daily News in an email.

And once she outgrows the baby stuff, J'Amie can always go to 7-Eleven on her birthday for a free Slurpee.
