This week we helped a family who had triple cause to celebrate. A THIRD generation of females was been born on the same day, defying odds of 50-million-to-one.
Little Harper Taylor was born on February 8 – joining her mother and grandmother who both share the same birthday.
SellUsYourStory.com helped the family share their story and receive a generous fee from a national newspaper and other publications.
We arranged an exclusive deal with The Sun newspaper, followed by deals with magazines and other newspapers.
What are the odds?
Mum Evie Berry, 26, was induced four days earlier on February 4, but incredibly her baby girl held on to arrive on the special day.
It was a shock to the rest of the family, including her grandmother Jacqui Berry, 55, who was born on the same day more than five decades ago.
The family, from Birmingham, West Midlands, plan to have a big party next year to celebrate the first birthday they will share together.
Evie, a telephone salesperson, said: “I still can’t get my head around it.
“It wasn’t how I’d planned to spend my birthday – but we have so many wonderful birthdays to look forward to together now!”
Jacqui, a business owner, was celebrating her 29th birthday when she went into labour with her daughter Evie, now 26. It meant she had to forgo her own birthday celebrations for a few years so her little girl could take the limelight on their special day.
But she says it was “completely worth it” to see the joy on her face.
“Evie’s getting a taste of her own medicine now!” Jacqui said.
Grandmother Jacqui and her partner Andy Brownhill, 55, moved away from Birmingham to Dumfries, Scotland, 10 years ago. But it became a birthday tradition for Evie to travel up north for the occasion in order to spend it as a family and get away from her busy city life.
A couple of their ‘big birthdays’ have even fallen in the same year, with the pair turning 50 and 21 in 2015.
“Andy took us both out for a surprise birthday meal to a fancy restaurant to celebrate that year,” Evie said.
“We both got dressed up and had an amazing steak and a few glasses of wine.
“We’ve never had a big party or anything, mainly because we want to spend the time together as we live further apart now.”
The close-knit family just wanted the baby to be healthy – but that didn’t stop them from placing bets on when the newest arrival would appear.
“I’m not normally a betting man,” Andy, Evie’s step-dad said.
“But I wish I’d gone down to the bookies and placed a bet on this one!”
When Evie woke up on her birthday in Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, she was told by medics that ‘enough was enough’ and it was about time to artificially break her waters to move the pregnancy along.
Evie was delighted when her second little girl Harper arrived at 6.48pm weighing 7lbs 8ozs.
“Now I can relate to how my mum must have felt having me,” Evie said.
“I don’t think anyone would choose to be in labour on their birthday – but I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
“Next year will be a big celebration,” Evie said.
“Harper’s 1st birthday, and our first chance to celebrate all together, the three of us.
“When she’s old enough to understand, I’ll always be reminding her of the hell of a lot of pain I went through to bring her into the world on my birthday,” Evie joked.
