Talk about coincidences! A carpenter and his wife (who just happened to be called Virgin Mary) were going to call their child after a prominent football star. But when he was born on the 25th of December, decided to call him Jesus.
A Peruvian woman named Virgin Mary has called her son Jesus after giving birth on Christmas Day. Virgin Maria Huarcaya, 20, delivered the 7.7 pound (3.5 kg) boy in the early hours of Christmas Day at the central maternity hospital in the capital Lima, according to Peru's state news agency. She then named him Jesus Emanuel. But in a further twist, the baby's father, Adolfo Jorge Huamani, 24, is a carpenter.
