CONCORD, N.C. (WGHP) — Brenda Gomez Hernandez, of Concord, won a $100,000 lottery prize from a Powerball ticket after delivering a baby girl on Nov. 9, according to an NC Education Lottery news release.

“I feel like she brought me my luck,” Hernandez said. “I’m so thankful.”

Hernandez, a 28-year-old housekeeper, matched numbers on four white balls and the Powerball to win $50,000 in the Nov. 9 drawing. The prize doubled to $100,000 when the 2X Power Play multiplier hit.

“When I found out, I cried,” she said. “I’m just so excited and happy.”

Hernandez bought her $3 Quick Pick ticket from the QuikTrip on Warren C. Coleman Boulevard in Concord.

“I have two sons, and I used their birthdays to pick my numbers,” Hernandez said.

She claimed her prize Wednesday at lottery headquarters. After the required tax withholdings, she took home $65,015.

Hernandez said a large amount of her winnings would go toward paying for her house.
