The Warwick couple was surprised and delighted when the birthday matched up with Tom Brady’s jersey number.
“As it approached, we kind of joked around that it was going to fall on the twelfth,” said Robert Hawley. “And actually, one of my friends pointed out to me as well — that he was born on the same day as Brady’s number.”
Kindred spirits? Or the luck of the Pats?
Brady Hawley was born right after Tom Brady and the Patriots topped the Indianapolis Colts in their divisional playoff game. Now the Hawleys are hoping their little star can bring some extra magic to the Patriots this postseason.
“I’d love for Brady to be their good luck charm!” said Mary Beth.
“It would be unbelievable… to have him and a Super Bowl,” added Robert. “It’d be a good start to the year.”
The Hawleys are taking baby Brady home Wednesday, and plan to watch the playoff game together on Sunday.
