DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — An incredible story came out of a Dothan birthing unit.

A Dothan woman added to her family a little earlier than expected on a date that is considered double lucky.

Jada Jones gave birth to her second baby boy, Jayce Lee Melton, at Southeast Health yesterday on February 22, 2022, at 2:22 p.m.

Her original due date was March 14th, but Jayce decided to make his way into the world on a date that won’t show up again in our lifetime.


“I think it is pretty awesome having a baby boy on 2/22, a day that only comes around once in a lifetime,” Jones said. “I didn’t really think that I would be having a 2/22/22 baby so yeah it feels pretty awesome.”

Jones says she is feeling good after the birth and that she and little Jayce plan to make their way home Thursday.
