A Family Has Four Kids With the Same Birthday . . . Beating One-in-133,000 Odds
This past Sunday, on January 12th, 22-year-old Emily Scrugham and 24-year-old Peter Dunn of Cumbria, in western England, gave birth to their fourth child . . . a boy named Ryan. And they probably should've KNOWN he'd be born that day.
Because all three of their OTHER kids were ALSO born on January 12th. Their oldest, Sam, was born on January 12th in 2009 . . . and their twin girls, Brooke and Nicole, were born on January 12th in 2012.
The odds of all of them being born on the same day are one in 133,225.
(For an explanation on the math there, there was a 1-in-365 chance of the twins being born on Sam's birthday, then a 1-in-365 chance of Ryan being born that same day too. That calculates to 1-in-133,225.)
Emily says, quote, "I really can't believe we have another birthday on the same day, it certainly wasn't planned. None of the births were due on January 12th. Sam was two weeks late, the twins were one month early, and Ryan was three days late."
Peter says he's still trying to figure out if it's easier to have the birthdays on one day or spread out . . . but we're thinking having four kids' birthdays just a few weeks after Christmas is most certainly NOT easier. (Daily Mail)
