3 sibling share same birth date

ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — Three young siblings of a Minnesota family will be sharing in a big way.

All three children were born on March 5 — in different years. The youngest, baby Russell O'Neill, was born Monday at a Rochester hospital. His sister, Rebecca, was also born on March 5, but two years ago. Brother Nolen turned 4 years old on March 5.

Mom Carrie O'Neill says it's an amazing coincidence since Russell wasn't due until mid-March. She says Nolen has already celebrated his birthday in the hospital when his sister was born two years ago and now the family is back in the hospital for Russell's birth.

Carrie O'Neill tells the Post-Bulletin ( ) her children won't have trouble remembering each other's birthday when they get older. She will celebrate her 26th birthday on Thursday.
