Lucky Birthday Happenstance: Lucy Marie Perkins’s Birth
The Odds Are Crazy
Not only is Lucy Marie Perkins’s birth story amazing, it happens too rarely to believe—only once every 48 million births. Her big day, Tuesday night, when she was born to Caitlin and Tom Perkins, will always be remembered as a special time when things just fell together.
Mom and Dad both have the same birthday.
Caitlin and Tom Perkins were both born on August 16, 1986. They are a loving husband and wife. Each of their births was unique in its own way. But they had no idea that their daughter Lucy had something special planned for them.
A Present for Birthday
In an unexpected turn of events, Lucy chose to attend her parents’ birthday party, showing up on the same date 30 years later. The amazing news spread like wildfire, and Dr. Brad Robinson, Caitlin’s obstetrician, even wrote about it on his Facebook page.
As he wrote, “Please hold on to the phone,” Dr. Robinson couldn’t hold back his excitement. This story is too good to be true. Now, can you think of anyone else born on August 16th? Yep. Lucy was born on the same day as her parents, after going into labor on her own.
A 1 in 48 million chance
There is a very small chance (one in 48 million) that a baby, father, and mother will all share the same birthday. Everyone was shocked by this amazing coincidence, which added an unforgettable chapter to the Perkins family history.
A prompt arrival
The miraculous event took place a little more than a week after Caitlin was supposed to give birth. Before they could have their dinner to celebrate their shared 30th birthday, Lucy, eager to make her public debut, decided it was time to come into the world.
When Caitlin went into labor, she was taken to Brisbane’s Greenslopes Private Hospital right away. Caitlin didn’t believe it at first when her waters broke, but she soon realized that her baby was ready to meet them.
Lucy, who weighed 3.3 kg, was born at 6:45 p.m. After working in the field for more than ten years, Dr. Robinson said it was one of the most amazing days of his life, saying, “Today was great, but I’m lucky to have a job where I get amazing days like this.”
An Exciting Party
For the Perkins family, August 16 will always be a day of joy and celebration because of the amazing birthday gift. When they throw a party every year, they will always remember the perfect moment when the stars aligned to bring Lucy Marie Perkins into their lives.
