He won't be the only kid turning 12 on 12-12-12 this week.

But Kiam Moriya of Hoover, Alabama, has a leg up on his fellow Sagittarians, entering the world at 12:12 p.m. that day in 2000, the Birmingham News reported.

"When I'm turning 12, it's going to be nothing but 12s," he told the newspaper.

Instead of birthday cake, Kiam will celebrate his special day with Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the shape of the number 12.

This Wednesday will also be a special day for weddings.

Bridal registries around the world are reporting a spike in nuptials that day, which is the last day this century to get hitched on a day with the same three digits, the Vancouver Sun reported.

The day was also purposefully chosen for the World Day of Interconnectedness, an all-star benefit for victims of Superstorm Sandy, as well as a giant group meditation in New Zealand, according to Yahoo! News.
