EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah -- A baby born on Friday the 13th in a hospital in American Fork was given a name that, combined with the date of his birth, almost seems to make him destined to one day report the news for FOX 13.

Trevor and Laura Burbidge of Eagle Mountain named their newborn son Fox, and with a birth date of November 13, the parallels are prevalent. However, the Burbidge's said Fox's name is actually a reference to a character from the "X-Files" (which aired on Fox, by the way).

"Late last night she started having contractions," Trevor Burbidge said. "It kind of came, we had just finished watching the "X-Files" movie, the first one, and, uh, she just started having contractions and we came in [to the hospital]."

So, while the name and birth date combination may be coincidental, we here at FOX 13 are saying "I want to believe" it means something more.
