Unusual Baby Stories

Dad And Son Born On Same Day/Time – 23 Years Apart

This story is kinda cute.

When Aevrik Murray was born at 2:33 a.m. June 23 and measured 19 inches long, it turned out his father had all the same numbers 23 years ago.

James Ham, and a professor of statistics at Delta College in Saginaw, Mich., told the Michigan’s Bay City Times the chance of that happening is 1 in 525,600.

“So it equals out to about 2 in 1 million that a father and son would share the same date and time of birth,” Ham said.

“I just kept staring at Jimmy’s birth certificate,” said Mary Murray, James Murray’s mother. “I said, ‘Jimmy, you’re not going to believe this: You were both born at exactly the same time.'”

There was another birthing similarity, as well. Like his father, Aevrik was born a few weeks before his due date.

“I thought he was going to come out early because I was an earlier baby,” James Murray said. “It was just a shock.”
