Anaya Hussain may have the magic touch.
BROOKLYN, NY (Catholic Online) - The two-year-toddler picked out the New York Poker ticket that has made her mother an instant millionaire.
Afsheen Ahsan, the girl's mother, said she went into the Top Convenience store in Brooklyn on Jan. 30 when her daughter simply reached over and placed her hand on a random ticket.
"She touched it," said Afsheen Ahsan, a stay-at-home mom. "If she didn't touch it, I wouldn't have taken it. She's lucky."
Ahsan and her boyfriend, Sayed Hussain, a 40-year-old grocery store worker, will have plenty of spending money with $31,152-a-year until 2031.
