Couple's 3 Children All Born on Oct. 2

Couple's 3 Children All Born on Oct. 2

It won't take much for Jenna and William Cotton to remember the birthday of the newest member of their family. Daughter Kayla was born Tuesday, which was Oct. 2 _ the same date her brothers were born on.
Ayden Cotton arrived on Oct. 2, 2003; Logan was born Oct. 2, 2006.
Based on that history, the parents said they had a feeling their baby daughter would come a couple of days past her Sept. 30 due date. Sure enough, Jenna Cotton, 23, began having contractions early Tuesday, hours before a planned birthday party for the boys.
She had a doctor's appointment scheduled later in the day and hung in for the party. Ayden, the 4-year-old, wanted to know if his new baby sister would make the festivities, Jenna Cotton said.
"He has been really excited about her coming," she said. "He kept asking when she was going to come out."
He wouldn't have to wait long. His mother's doctor sent her to a hospital, where 7-pound, 8-ounce Kayla was born at 7:07 p.m. Tuesday.
The odds of a family having three children born on the same date in different years are about 7.5 in 1 million, said Bill Notz, a statistics professor at Ohio State University.
The Cottons don't plan to roll the dice on a fourth Oct. 2 baby, saying that's it for them, as far as having children.
Marysville is about 30 miles northwest of Columbus.
