A girl was born on the same day that her mother and grandmother challenge the odds of 50 million to one.
Harper Taylor arrived on February 8, joining her mother Evie Berry, 26, and her grandmother Jacqui Berry, 55, who both share the same birthday.
Evie was induced four days earlier on February 4th, but incredibly Harper resisted to arrive on the special day.
The family, from Birmingham, plans to organize a big party next year to celebrate the first birthday they will share together.
Evie, a telephone salesman, said: “I still can’t think about it.
‘It wasn’t like I planned to spend my birthday – but we have so many wonderful birthdays to watch together now!’
Jacqui, an entrepreneur, celebrated his 29th birthday when he went to work with his daughter Evie.
It meant that she had to give up on her birthday celebrations for a few years so that her little girl could take the limelight for their birthday.
But she says “it was worth it” to see the joy on her face.
“Evie is tasting her own medicine now!” Added Jacqui.
Grandma Jacqui and her partner Andy Brownhill, 55, moved from Birmingham to Dumfries, Scotland ten years ago.
But it has become a birthday tradition for Evie to travel north for the occasion to spend it with her family.
A couple of their “big birthdays” even fell in the same year, with the couple turning 50 and 21 in 2015.
‘Now I can understand how my mother must have tried to have me,’ said Evie.
‘I don’t think anyone would choose to be in labor for his birthday – but I wouldn’t change it for the world.’
Andy, Evie’s stepfather said that he was not a betting man, but wished he had gone to the bookmakers and bet that his granddaughter would be born on February 8th.
Evie and her partner Josh Taylor, 29, have another two-year-old daughter called Georgia.
