Anyone who is born on the same day as a close relative knows it can have its drawbacks if your family force you to share the birthday attention, or worse – the cake.
Now, imagine sharing your birthday with not one, but two close family members. In fact, make it your parents. That’s the reality facing seven-day-old Winter Elle Henley who was born on both her mum and dad’s birthday.
South Australian couple Astrid Myers, 22, and Chris Henley, 23, welcomed little Winter on July 10 – which just so happens to be their shared birthday.
The chance of this occurring was about one in 133,000, University of South Australia School of Information Technology and Mathematical Sciences associate professor Regina Burachik told the Adelaide Advertiser.
Myers told the newspaper that her due date had originally been the 10th, but it had been later adjusted to the 17th.
