An Unusual Coincidence When Baby Was Born 10 Days Early

Birthday cake clip artThis is a coincidence along the lines of another post I recently published, 7:43 A Baby Is Born And Again And Again.

February 5th was a special day for mum Pam Banwell as it was her daughter Millie's first birthday. There was an extra big family celebration in South Wales because, as well as being Millie's birthday, it was also the birthday of her two other children Jac and Alisha.

Pam and her partner Lee Collins didn't plan it to happen this way it was just one of those 133,000 to one coincidences that can happen. Millie actually came into the world ten days prematurely - another coincidence.

There was a special birthday cake. No, not one each - but a cake in three sections: a third in the colours of Manchester United Football Club for Jac, a third as a Princess for Alisha and the remaining segment was of Mickey Mouse for Millie.

Pam said, "When most families are trying to cope with the post-Christmas blues, we are planning a big celebration all over again. It's like Christmas morning with presents and a big party. And it will be the same on February the 5th for years to come as well."

I also saw the following on a Daily Mail comment: "My mother was born on the 7th August 1933, I was born on the same day, 7th August 1955, I got married on 7th August 1984, my best mate and man was born on the same day as me, my eldest daughter was born on the 7th August 1986 and my son on 7th August 1987. Beat that! - Paul"

  1. Just love these kinds of synchros. It's so interesting, too, that certain numbers combinations seem to follow people throughout their lives.

  2. What a coincidence, nice post.

    I also love these stories because of tracking back those nine months to conception. Our first three girls were born in March and April so we often laughed about the start of bathing suit season being a fun time.

    But then our 4th girl was born in July and showed how we had changed as parents and our fun time was the beginning of the school year. :D

  4. I just love stories like this!

  5. That's really cool. I think it would be great to be able to celebrate the birthdays of my kids all on one day.

  6. I find this extraordinarily neat because my older brother and I are 2 years and 6 days apart. As children, we always celebrated our birthdays together with the same cake. As an adult I have always felt something was missing, no longer sharing this day with him. Thank you for this post.
