And, understandably, Connor couldn’t wait to call Jim to let him know about the incredible coincidence. “I called my grandpa and said, ‘Hey, grandpa, grab a seat for this one,’” Connor told ABC News. “He kind of laughed, and I think he could hear Beau crying in the background. Next thing you know, he was in the car driving down to the hospital.”

“It’s beyond my words,” Jim would later say of his great-grandson’s birth. “It was so exciting, it was just hard to believe. I’m 86 now, and I don’t know how many more birthdays I’ll have. But that’s a special incentive to keep going, for sure.” Recalling that he’d cried floods of tears when Connor was born, Jim added, “I didn’t cry this time. I was just joyous. It’s all part of God’s plan.”
