Three Siblings Born on Same Day, Three Successive Years

December 22, 1993

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) _ The Cunninghams have three reasons to celebrate on Dec. 21. It’s the date their children were born in three successive years.

Paul Joseph Cunningham II was born in 1991, Stephen Patrick Cunningham in 1992 and Breonna Danielle Cunningham was born Tuesday. Labor was not induced for any of the births although Breonna was delivered by Caesarean section.

Is there something in the stars for the couple?

″I don’t know what happened,″ said Danielle Cunningham, who delivered Breonna at Ohio State University Medical Center.

″It must be something they’re doing,″ said Dr. Mervin Samuels, who delivered the three siblings. ″I haven’t asked them what.″

Samuels said never in his 22 years of practice had he seen a patient who has delivered children on the same date in different years.

All of the Cunningham babies were full-term and healthy. Breonna weighed in at 6 pounds, 10 1/4 ounces.

Paul Joseph Cunningham, the father, said the children’s birthdays will be celebrated together for a few years, then his daughter may have her own.
