Unusual Baby Stories

October 2nd Is 3 Times Lucky For Ohio Couple

Jenna and and William Cotton won’t need to write the date of their newest daughter’s birth on the calender.

Daughter Kayla was born Tuesday, which was Oct. 2 — the same date her brothers were born.

Ayden Cotton also arrived on Oct. 2, 2003 and Logan Cotton on Oct. 2, 2006.

Jenna, who was due on September 29th, had a feeling her baby might come a few days late, but she never thought it would land on the lucky date.

She had a doctor’s appointment scheduled later in the day and hung in for the party. Ayden, the 4-year-old, wanted to know if his new baby sister would make the festivities, Jenna Cotton said.

Kayla, at 7-pounds, 8-ounces, was born at 7:07 p.m. Tuesday.

The odds of a family having three children born on the same date in different years are about 7.5 in 1 million, said Bill Notz, a statistics professor at Ohio State University.
