My friend just gave birth to her son exactly 2 years after her daughter was born. They were both born February 16. How ironic is that! Its so neat. I wonder how often this happens. I think the chances of it are very slim! Do you have children that are born on the same exact day but years apart?

Hi,I have 3 children born on the same day.I have Boy and girl twins who were born on the 7th May 1999.Then ten years later I had a little boy who was born on their 10th birthday,the 7th may 2009 at 23.48 so he only just made it.

I'm not sure what time 23:48 is. I'm guessing like 11:48 maybe? I think 23:48 is military time. Thats pretty amazing that you had a boy born exactly 10 years after his twin brother and sister. Are they the only children you've had or just the only ones that share the same birthday? It will be interesting to see when my friend has her third baby if that baby is due around the same day as well.

Yes 11.48,they are the only children I have.My little boy has been a shock to the system after a 10 year gap so he will probably be our last, lol.

My cousins, Bless and Glads, were born on the same date, July 1 and like three years apart. The younger one is my age and rumors has it that when the Bless was celebrating her third birthday, her mother was giving birth to her little sister. It's so cute I think. They are also sweet sisters.

That is what happened with my friend. While the mother was in labor the daughter was celebrating her birthday at chuck e cheese. The mother was sad she had to miss her daughters birthday celebration but what could she do :) Having children born on the same exact day but years apart is really a freak occurance and pretty amazing. I remember in the guiness book of world records the record was a woman who had 4 or 5 children born on the same day but years apart. Imagine that.

Aw, thank you for the BR. It's been ages since I got my last one. Wow 4 or 5 children born on the same day! That's really amazing. Hang on, I think I saw that news not many months ago. It does happen in this queer world and it's just amazing.

No, I don't, nor do I know anyone that does. But my in-laws have a couple of grown kids whose birthdays are only 4 days away from each others, yet they are 6 years apart. My own kids birthdays are close enough, with their birthdays being 15 days apart and mine in the middle of it. LOL

Thats neat though that your kids are 15 days apart and your birthday is right in the middle. Thats a lot of celebrations in such a short time. Did you used to have a combined birthday party for your kids since they were so close or did you give them each a seperate birthday party?

I did when they were younger, but now that they are older I try to celebrate them separately.

Haha! Wow! That is pretty neat! I don't think I've ever known anyone with different aged kids that share birthdays. I know a handful of parents that share a birthday with one of their kids. And I have a friend and all of her kids were born on the 22nd (of different months though.) I wonder how the kids feel about it! I don't think I'd like sharing a birthday with one of my younger siblings!

My sisters two children were born on the 12th but one was in September and one was in January. This friend of mine was induced both times so she wound up having them on the same day but still even to be due for your child within days of the date you were due with your first one is still pretty amazing.

My daughters have the same birthday September 17 1992 and 1994. 2 years apart my oldest daughter got a sister for her birthday.

This discussion I wrote a few years ago before I realized that it probably will be considered a poll type question and be deleted. That is really amazing that you had your children exactly two years apart as well. It is so neat when that happens. My kids werent even close to being near the same birthday they were may 21 and october 18.

That is very difficult to do. I don't think you can actually plan it. I have a friend who had birthdays one day a part, so they celebrate birthdays on three consecutive days.

Hehe I dont know if you could really plan it either. You could come pretty close to landing around the same day but landing on exactly the same day would be pretty hard to do. It would be funny if they have another one and it happens to be born on the same exact day again.

that is really neat! I never thought about that happening, but I do imagine it is possible!
