Dana Turnbull became the third generation in a row to be born on January 18, sharing a birthday with her mum Joy Spowart, 21, and grandmother Judie Spowart, 51
Three generations of the same family have defied odds of 130,000/1 to all be born on the same DAY.
Dana Turnbull became the third generation in a row to be born on January 18, sharing a birthday with her mum Joy Spowart, 21, and grandmother Judie Spowart, 51.
Little Dana was due to arrive on January 20, but Joy went into a prolonged labour on January 16, with the youngster being born at 12:58am on January 18.
Joy said: “I think about a month before she was born everyone was saying ‘I bet she comes on your birthday’.
“But I didn’t want that. I wanted her to have her own day.
“I was convinced she would be over her due date but two days before her birthday I woke up at 4.30am with contractions.
“I was in labour for two days and she was born at 12.58am on my birthday.
“I was on gas and air at the time but I remember the midwife saying to me she is definitely going to be born on your birthday as it got closer to midnight
“I think I just let out a groan.”
Dana’s proud dad Connor Turnbull, 20, who met Joy while the pair were working at a call centre in South Shields, Tyne & Wear, said: “”We were all amazed that three generations of her family now share the same birthday.
