Choosing a name for your baby can be a daunting prospect, as it stays with them for the rest of their life, so it's usually a big decision. Not for a recent lottery winner though, who after winning the lottery, has decided to name her unborn child Max, after the lottery.
A Canadian lottery player, Erin Moore won $126,968.50 on the Lotto Max draw on January 13th. She’s so happy about winning the lottery, that she told lottery officials that she will be naming her unborn child Max, after Lotto Max.
“I will be naming my little boy Max,” said the Lotto Max winner, from Owen Sound in Ontario.
She said that not only is she extremely lucky to have fallen pregnant, but now she has also got lucky on the lotto.
“I had surgery years ago that meant I wouldn’t have any more children so this baby is a gift,” said Erin after she matched six out of seven drawn numbers, plus the bonus number on her ticket.
Erin said that the lottery win couldn’t have come at a better time. “I have two wonderful daughters and this little boy is due very soon,” she continued.
With the lottery winnings finally reflecting in her bank account, Erin said that she plans to start her own business, take care of her two daughters, and of course go on a shopping spree for cute baby goodies.
“Winning the lottery gives me freedom – it’s awesome,” said Erin.
Erin purchased her winning lottery ticket at Winber Mart on 2nd Avenue East in Owen Sound.
