Family's 4 children all have the same birthday

Family's 4 Children All Have The Same Birthday
One set of parents has it really easy when it comes to remembering their children's birthdays.

'All four of their children just so happen to be born on January 12th,' 'GMA' reports. 'Five-year-old Sam started the trend, followed by his two-year-old sisters and baby Ryan came into the world last Sunday, January 12.'

Parents Emily Scrugham and Peter Dunn told England's News & Star they never planned to have their children born on the same day.

In fact, none of the four kids were even supposed to be born on January 12th. Sam was born two weeks late, twins Brooke and Nicole had to be delivered a month early because doctors couldn't find their heartbeats, and baby Ryan was three days late.

Daily Mail reports Emily has already decided how they're going to celebrate the quadruple birthday.

'We plan to make every birthday a real family event where birthdays get celebrated individually and together.'

News & Star says the chances of having four birthdays on the same day is 133,225 to 1. But beating those odds also means the family is going to have to celebrate a 21st, an 18th and a 16th birthday party all on the same day. Good luck with that.

Me too, my birthday is January 12th. I was pregnant with twins and had been on drugs due to premature labor and had broken through the labor on my birthday. I was definitely not happy with the prospect of sharing my birthday with my twins. Luckily the labor stopped on its own and they were born on the 16th instead.

I was bone May 6 and 2 years later my own baby brother was my birthday gift from God.
I have always been thrilled to be a big sister and he is a true blue hero in my life. I am
now 80 years old and my younger sibling is still a part of my life that is dear and precious
to me
