3 siblings share same birthday


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- For those of us with siblings sometimes sharing was the hardest thing to do.  But for one Eyota family, three kids are going to have to get used to it since their birthdays are all on the same day.

On March, 5 at 9:41 p.m., the Carrie O'Neill gave birth to 7-pound 4-ounce, Russell Allen.

"When I went into labor I didn't think we'd still be on the 5th but he just came that fast," said Carrie.

When Russell was born, both his brother, Nolan, and  sister, Rebecca, were having their own birthday celebrations. So Russell invited himself to the party.

Now all three siblings, 4 years apart, share a birthday on March, 5.

"Nobody I know has ever had it happen," said the father Shawn O'Neill.  "I'm going to have to go buy a lottery ticket. I don't know what's going on."

"With our first two I didn't want them on the same day because I wanted them to have their own special day," said Carrie. "And that wasn't avoidable apparently."

And if three birthdays in one day isn't enough, Carrie's birthday is within the same week.

She will turn 26 on Thursday.
