BRISBANE, Australia – A child having the same birthday as one of the parents is an amazing coincidence. However, if both parents have the same birthday as their kid, that is a one-in-48-million chance.
An article by Storyful said that Lucy Marie Perkins, who was born Aug. 16, is one of a kind to her parents, as both Caitlin and Tom shares the same birthday as their newborn daughter.
Lucy, as well as her mom and dad, were all born on the same day in the same month. Caitlin and Tom were born within 50 minutes of each other on August 16, 1986.
Dr. Brad Robinson, Caitlin’s doctor, posted a photo of the family last Tuesday.
“HOLD THE PHONE! You are not going to believe this story! This is Caitlin, Tom and their brand new daughter Lucy. So get this … both Caitlin and Tom turned 30 yesterday. Born within 50 minutes of each other on 16/08/86. Guess who else now has a birthday on 16 August? YEP,” Robinson said.
“I feel kinda bad now because I’d been goading Caitlin for a week that I was somehow going to make this happen – so she now blames me for putting a hex on her!” the doctor said on his Facebook post.
“How incredible is it that the three of them now have the same birthday? And what a gorgeous family they make!” he added.
Indeed, it’s something that can make people smile. 3-in-1 birthday celebration! Now that’s three great reasons to celebrate August 16!
