It was four years ago when a New Jersey woman (who herself was born on Leap Day) gave birth to her daughter on the same unique date. According to Tufts University Professor James Ennis, the odds of a mother and child sharing Leap Day birthdays are 1 in 2.1 million!

According to the AP, Michelle Birnbaum recently celebrated her "eighth" birthday, while her daughter Rose just turned “one” on February 29th. Birnbaum said that when she went into labor on February 28th, 2008, it was only the following day during that auspicious date that her child was finally delivered.

However, if there's one downside to being a Leap Day baby is that some web sites requesting biographical information apparently won’t accept February 29th as a legitimate date of birth. But hey, at least nobody will ever forget your birthday!
