A couple’s bumper birthday gift makes their family pretty special!

The arrival of their newborn daughter on December 18 created a particularly wonderful family bond.

When Cassidy and Dylan Scott welcomed their first child on December 18, their daughter shared something special with her mom and dad straight away.

In fact, in a 1 in 133,000 occurrence, little Lennon arrived on both her mom and her dad’s birthdays.

As the staff from Huntsville Hospital for Women and Children in Huntsville, Alabama, shared on Facebook:

“This is an exciting time for any family, but it’s extra special for this family because they all share the same birthday. That’s right! On Sunday, December 18, a chance that’s one in 133,000 occurred when their daughter Lennon was born.”

The little bundle was particularly timely with her birth, arriving at 12:30 a.m., giving her parents just half an hour before they could celebrate their birthdays altogether.

As you might imagine, people were quick to offer their congratulations to the family, with some commenters sharing they had a similar situation in their own families. While many people pointed out that the future birthday celebrations were going to be wonderful, we can’t help but think that God had a little smile looking down at the new family He’s created. He certainly works in mysterious ways!
