In an apparent case of defining new heights of co-incidence, a British woman beat odds of 50 million-to-one after giving birth to her third baby who has the same birth date as two of her siblings.
Mum Pam Banwell, from Barry Port, South Wales, welcomed little Milly Banwell on February 5, the same date she delivered her other children Jac and Alisha years before.
AdvertisementAdding a further twist to the story was the fact that none of the kids were expected to be born on that date.
"Everyone I meet is stunned when I tell them three of my kids were born on the same day," the Daily Express quoted Pam, who also has a daughter, Courtney, as saying.
"There was no pre-planning involved. We didn't plan for a particular time of year and I didn't believe it was going to happen a third time," she added.
The 34-year-old mother further joked: "I will have to try and get sponsorship for it - or try and get a discount from the venue. When I heard the odds of having three births on one date, I was stunned. I should play the lottery more often. We are still in shock but there is going to be a big party next year."
