Despite the fact that none of her daughters are the same age, a Florida mother gave birth to all three of her daughters on the same day.
On August 25, 2016, Kristen Lammert of Oveida welcomed Sophia for the first time. She then gave birth to Giuliana on August 25, 2018.
And Kristen, 32, and her husband Nick were taken aback when their youngest daughter Mia came on August 25, 2021, despite the couple stating that having all three of their children arrive on the same day was never a plan.
A Florida family has three girls with the same birth date as of August.
Kristen, 32, anticipated she would spend her first daughter Sophia’s third birthday in the delivery room on August 25 when she was pregnant with her second daughter, Giuliana.
Kristin went to her doctor after Sophia’s birthday celebration in 2018 and learnt that her blood pressure was high; medical staff induced her second pregnancy that evening.
Her two daughters celebrated their birthdays this year while their mother gave birth to Mia, their newest sister.
Kristin told TODAY Parents, ‘We were completely in disbelief.’
Kristen Lammert of Florida, 32 (shown second from right) and Nick Lammert of Florida, 32 (pictured left), have three young girls who share the same birthday: Sophia, 6 (right), Giuliana, 3 (left, in Nick’s lap), and two-month-old Mia (in Kristin’s arms). None of them are identical twins.
‘Sophia is really emotional about a lot of things in a good way – she enjoyed the uniqueness and thrill of that,’ Kristin said of her eldest daughter Sophia (shown right), who has no qualms about sharing a birthday with her two sisters.
‘The closer August 25 approached, and the more we laughed about it at home, the more I wanted it to happen.’
Sophia, her oldest kid, confidently told people this year that she would be getting a sister – again – for her sixth birthday, according to her mother.
‘She wanted it to happen, and I thought to myself, “Well, it could.”‘
Sophia (right) and Giuliana (left) decide on the party’s theme jointly – Mia will be consulted when she is old enough – Kristin (left) ensures that each girl has the same amount of guests and gifts. ‘I get them different cakes so they can each blow out their candles,’ she explained. ‘I strive to keep it separate while still making it a joint party.’ They’ll both feel like wonderful birthday girls this way.’

Kristin anticipated she would spend her first daughter Sophia’s third birthday in the delivery room on August 25 when she was pregnant with her second daughter, Giuliana (shown). Kristin went to her doctor after Sophia’s birthday celebration in 2018 and learnt that her blood pressure was high; medical staff induced her second pregnancy that evening.
Sophia, Giuliana, and baby Mia are all three years apart in age: Sophia is six, Giuliana is three, and baby Mia will be two months old tomorrow. According to Dr. Christine Greves, an OB-GYN at Orland Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies who is not Kristin’s doctor, the chances of having three children with the same birthdate are incalculably rare.
‘It’s exceedingly uncommon…. We talked to several statisticians, and they said it was quite difficult to calculate,’ Greves told TODAY.
The Cummins family of Virginia holds the Guinness World Record for the most children born to one family on the same day, with five.
When the family was recognized as the “only verifiable record of a family generating five single children with the same date of birth” by Guinness World Records in 1977. In 1977, the odds of such happening were calculated to be 17.7 billion to 1.
Greves also informed the publication that just 5% of kids are born on their due dates. Kristin was induced two weeks after Sophia’s due date, and the mother feared she might give delivery sooner than her August 29 due date when she was pregnant with Giuliana.
Sophia (left) is six years old, Giuliana (right) is three years old, and baby Mia will be two months old tomorrow. The chances of having three children with the same birthdate are statistically insignificant.
‘I joked that she could arrive four days early,’ and the family said, “Well, yeah, but that’s probably not going to happen on its own.”
‘Sophia is really emotional about a lot of things in a good way – she embraced the uniqueness and thrill of that,’ Kristin said of her eldest daughter, who has no qualms about sharing a birthday with her two sisters.
‘She thinks it’s one-of-a-kind.’ She adores the fact that she’ll be celebrating her birthday with her sisters, as she’s already had three shared birthday celebrations.’
Sophia and Giuliana decide on the theme of the party together – Mia will be consulted when she is old enough – and Kristin ensures that each girl has the equal number of guests and gifts.
‘I get them different cakes so they can each blow out their candles,’ she explained. ‘I strive to keep it separate while still making it a joint party.’ They’ll both feel like wonderful birthday girls this way.’
After organizing Sophia and Giuliana’s Luca-themed birthday parties in early August, Kristin began to think that her third daughter’s birthday would fall on the same day as her siblings.
Kristin contracted COVID-19 about 10 weeks into her most recent pregnancy; expectant moms who contract the coronavirus are more likely to have difficulties and, as a result, deliver prematurely.
Kristin awakened with swollen ankles and a headache the weekend before the faithful day, unmistakable indicators of impending pregnancy.
‘My doctor indicated I could be two weeks early,’ I added. That’s when she looked at the calendar and remarked to her husband, “Oh my my, Nick, two weeks before the due date is August 25,” she explained.
‘He’s like, ‘No way,'” says the narrator. “She’s definitely going to be born on the 25th,” I thought at the time.
Kristin was diagnosed with preeclampsia after seeing her doctor about her painful symptoms following her girls’ birthday celebration, and physicians sought to expedite her delivery.
‘My doctor indicated I could be two weeks early,’ I added. I remember turning to my husband and saying, “Oh my god, Nick, two weeks before the due date is August 25,”‘ as I looked at the calendar. Kristin remarked
Mia was born on August 25th, following her sisters’ birthday celebrations.
Kristin has observed some dubious commenters speculating that she planned her inductions or manipulated her three daughters’ birthdays since TODAY aired an item on the strange coincidence.
She admitted that she and her husband, 33-year-old Nick, had planned for their three children to be three years apart. Because August fell between the major holidays, the couple tried for an August baby with their first pregnancy.
They had hoped, however, that Mia would be born after September 1 so that, like her sisters, she would not be the youngest in her class when she was old enough to attend school.
Despite the fact that all of her pregnancies were induced, she told CNN that it wasn’t to coincide with her daughters’ birthdays.
‘The date doesn’t just fall into place.’ ‘My doctors weren’t going to induce me just because the date seemed interesting,’ she explained.
Even still, Kristin admits that she sometimes can’t believe the odds.
‘It’s one-of-a-kind.’ ‘To be honest, I don’t get it,’ she admitted. ‘Every now and again, I go look at their birth certificates.’ “They actually all have the same birthday,” I say.
