美国一家三口同日生

2006-05-31 14:23CRI Online

Husband, Wife, Baby Share Same Birthday

A husband, wife and their first child beat enormous odds and share the same birthday.

Evelin Alballat was introduced to Tony Osman several years ago by one of her relatives who learned they were both born on May 21. The couple married two years ago.

Their baby's due date was May 20 and Alballat started having contractions around 10 p.m. that night. She was then admitted to Marian Medical Center.

"I kept staring at the clock and wanted it to turn past midnight before I delivered my baby," she said.

Danny Osman entered the world about 12 hours later.

"We didn't plan for it; it just happened," Alballat said.

"We were just dumbfounded," Osman added.

The chances of three family members sharing a birthday are .000751 percent, according to Paul Murphy, a mathematician and dean of academic affairs at Allan Hancock College.

Future birthdays will be a family celebration with one big cake and a vacation, Osman said. While the couple intends to have more children, they said they won't aim for a fourth May 21 birth.

"We want to have one more, but we'll just see what happens," Osman said.



 近日,美国的一个三口之家发生了一件很巧合的事情——丈夫、妻子和儿子的生日居然发生在同一天。

    据美联社5月23日报道,几年前,阿巴拉特经人介绍认识了现在的丈夫奥斯曼,后来他们发现两人的生日都是5月21日。两年前,阿巴拉特和奥斯曼结婚。

    今年的5月20日是他们第一个孩子的预产期,但在当晚10点左右阿巴拉特才开始出现要生产的迹象。后来,阿巴拉特的儿子小奥斯曼在12小时后降临人世,正好和爸爸妈妈是同一天生日。

    阿巴拉特说:“我20日发现要生产后就一直盯着钟看,很希望孩子能在21日出生。我们并没有刻意将孩子生在21日,但奇迹却发生了。面对如此大的巧合,我和丈夫都惊喜万分。”

    报道说,数学家指出,一家三口能够同月同日生的几率为仅0.000751%。

    奥斯曼夫妇表示,今后他们一家三口过生日时将举行大型家庭宴会,他们将做好准备,让第2个孩子也降生在5月21日,他们说:“我们希望再要一个孩子,但不知道是不是还会有这样的惊喜发生。”
