Baby, father and grandpa beat odds by sharing same birthday

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - An Arizona family now has three reasons to celebrate Oct. 14.

After welcoming baby Ava Keel Monday at Scottsdale Healthcare Shea Medical Center, the family now has three generations who share the same birthday.

According to a report from Scottsdale Healthcare, Ava, her father and grandfather beat the odds of 300,000 to 1 by all being born on Oct. 14.

When 6 pound, 7 1/2 ounce Ava was born after an emergency cesarean section, it seemed like it was fate for the newborn to continue the family pattern.

Despite her unexpected delivery, the baby girl is happy and healthy, according to the report.
