3 Sisters Give Birth On The Same Day
What are the odds?
MANSFIELD (AP) — Three Ohio sisters have defied odds by giving birth on the same day in the same hospital with the same obstetrician overseeing their deliveries.
If you think of odds as a mathematical equation - meaning, eventually this had to happen - then this was destined to happen
Daneesha Haynes, Ariel Williams and Ashley Haynes gave birth July 3 at Ohio Health Mansfield Hospital within a four-and-a-half-hour span, the Mansfield News Journal reported.
A 1998 Associated Press story cited the odds of three sisters giving birth the same day as 1 in 50 million. According to Lottery USA, the odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302.6 million. While your winning the lotto is not likely, someone will, eventually.
“It was a blessing,” Daneesha Haynes said. “It's amazing. This kind of blew everybody away.”
All three sisters had their deliveries induced. Daneesha was not due until July 23. Dr. Edroy McMillan delivered all three babies. He declined to be interviewed.
(AP News) Williams was the first to give birth that day, naming her 8 pound, 2 ounce daughter Sincere. Ashley Haynes followed with her 6 pound, 10 ounce son Adrion. Daneesha Haynes completed the trifecta with daughter Emrie, who weighed in at 4 pounds, 14 ounces.
The sisters' mother, Deborah Ware, joked there would be no extra children at the newborns' future birthday parties.
“I don’t know what kind of party we’ll have," Daneesha Haynes said. “We’ll party for two days straight.”
I'm not sure what happens next but their birthday parties are going to be a blast. 3-in-one every year, almost as if they were triplets.
