- At Home
Talk about good luck! One New York mom is now a millionaire, thanks to a helping hand from her toddler.
Afsheen Ahsan says she never would have purchased a scratch-off lottery ticket worth $1 million if her two-year-old daughter Anaya Hussain hadn't helped her pick it.
“She touched it,” Ahsan told NY Daily News. “If she didn’t touch it, I wouldn’t have taken it. She’s lucky.”
The 34-year-old stay at home mom was visiting her neighborhood convenience store when little Anaya put her hand on a New York Poker ticket. Ahsan says she took it as a sign - and good thing she did!
Ahsan and her boyfriend, Sayed Hussain, will receive $31,152 a year until 2031.
So what will they do with the winnings?
"I'm going on vacation, but I have no idea where," Ahsan said. "I want to start a business too, a grocery store."
