The Burnette family of Roanoke says they have their own prince.

Victoria Burnette gave birth to a baby boy at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital just half an hour before Kate Middleton's surprise delivery Monday.

Like the Duchess of Cambridge, both mothers were overdue, Burnette by four days.

But, the comparisons don't stop there. Baby Jabari weighed eight pounds, seven ounces -- just one ounce more than the new prince.

"It's different. It's neat though. I have my own special day. Can't nobody else say their baby was born with Kate's, but I can," new mother Victoria Burnette said.

The Burnettes are planning to bring Jabari home Wednesday.
