A North Carolina woman scored two jackpots in one day when she won a $100,000 Powerball prize just hours after giving birth to her daughter.
She went into labor on Nov. 9, the day of the drawing, after purchasing a Powerball ticket from the QuikTrip store on Warren C Coleman Boulevard in Concord.
Hernández gave birth to a healthy baby girl just hours before discovering she had won $100,000.
“I feel like she brought me my luck,” Hernandez said. “I’m so thankful.”
Hernandez said her other two children are also partially responsible for the win.
“I have two sons and I used their birthdays to pick my numbers,” Hernandez said.
She said it was a lot of luck for a single day.
“When I found out I cried,” she said. “I’m just so excited and happy.”
She said she will be able to pay off her home with her winnings.
