Leap Day Baby Story

Posted:

Little Ava Anne Roberts-Stidd was born two months early this morning in Pittsburgh. It's unusual enough to be born on Leap Day, February 29th, a day that only comes around every four years, but turns out that the doctor who was called in unexpectedly to deliver her was also born on Leap Day.

Dr. Arcangela Balest, M.D., of Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, said, "I didn't even like think about it until they called me and said they had the first Leap Baby in the city, and that I was there as well so, I think it's great."

And to make this story even stranger, baby Ava has another Leap Year connection- her grandmother also celebrates a Leap Day birthday.
