Miracle timing as baby girl is born on the same day as her parents

A Queensland couple have welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world on both of their birthdays.

Yes, birthdays –  Caitlin and Tom Perkins were both born on August 16 and now their little bundle of joy, Lucy Perkins, has joined in on the family tradition.

In an adorable post on Facebook, the couple’s maternity doctor revealed that the chance of the couple’s daughter being born on the exact same date was 1 in 48 million.


“HOLD THE PHONE! You are not going to believe this story!” Dr Brad Robinson wrote.

“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. Lucy was born yesterday after SPONTANEOUS labour on the same day as her parents! The chances of that happening are 1 in 48 million!

“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!

“How incredible is it that the three of them now have the same birthday? And what a gorgeous family they make!”
