March 2, 1992

JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) _ Karen Kennedy was set to throw a birthday party for her 4-year-old son, Kristopher, who was born Feb. 29 in the last leap year. But their fun Saturday was interrupted when she gave birth to another leap year baby.

Kelsey Kennedy wasn’t due until St. Patrick’s Day, March 17.

″It must be the moon,″ Mrs. Kennedy said of her knack for giving birth on Feb. 29.

An aunt and uncle took over the party for Kristopher and his 20 young guests set for 3:30 p.m.; daughter Kelsey was born at 3:15 p.m.

Mrs. Kennedy said her husband, Stephen, was incredulous.

″He couldn’t believe it. He said, ’Only we could do this,‴ she said.
