The birth of Lucy Marie Perkins is one of the most special in the whole world. Only 1 in 48 million people have it.
Caitlin and Tom Perkins welcomed Lucy, their first child, into the world on Tuesday night. They are both wonderful people.
But it appears that celebrating Mum and Dad’s birthday wasn’t enough for the tiny Perkins, who wanted to join in the celebration 30 years later.
“Hold onto the phone, please! You won’t believe this story,” Caitlin’s obstetrician Dr. Brad Robinson said on his Facebook page.
“Can you figure out anyone else who was born on August 16th now? Yup. Following spontaneous labor, Lucy was born on the same day as her parents.”
Mother even gave birth a week early. Before Caitlin and Tom, who are from Dirranbandi in South West Queensland, could even attend their joint 30th birthday dinner, Lucy decided it was time to enter the world.
She said, “When my waters broke, I said, ‘No way,’ because I was in denial.”
The child was healthy and was born weighing 3.3 kg. Dr. Robinson said:
“Today was fantastic, but I’m fortunate enough to have a career where I get exceptional days like this.”
“It’s not every day that you’re happy to be awakened by the phone at 2:15 in the morning. However, at about 2:15 a.m., the midwife called to let me know that Caitlin had broken her waters. I was ecstatic because I kind of wanted it to happen that way.”
