A British couple's three children beat odds of 133,000 to one to share birthdays on January 29.
Martin and Kim MacKriell's son Robin was born on January 29, 1994, followed by Rebecca on January 29, 1996, and now Ruby on January 29, 2008.

Ruby - who was originally due on February 7 - was delivered by caesarean section, and doctors told Kim January 29 was the only available date.

Robin, 14, said: "Everyone thinks it is really weird. When people heard Ruby had been born on the same date as us they said we should put it in the newspaper." "But January 29 is a bit like Christmas without the tree, with us all getting presents on the same day."
