Couple's Three Children All Born On Same Day

MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) - It won't be hard for a central Ohio family to remember the birthday of its newest member.

Kayla Cotton was born Tuesday, which was October 2nd -- the same day of the year her 4- and 1-year-old brothers were born on.

Parents Jenna and William Cotton of Marysville had a feeling their baby daughter would arrive a couple of days past her September 30th due date. Still, the mom says she has to wonder:

What are the chances?

Ohio State University statistics professor Bill Notz has the answer: about 7-and-a-half in 1 million.

The Cottons don't plan to roll the dice on a fourth October 2nd birth. They say they're done having kids.
