Mother, son celebrate leap year birthdays

February 29, 2008

Valdosta - It's an amazing coincidence.

Friday, a south Georgia woman and her son are celebrating their leap year birthdays.

Nancy and Paul Fornes were both born on February 29th.

The odds of that are one in more than two million.

Technically, this is Nancy's 19th birthday and Paul's 12th.

Although their true birthdays only come around once every four years, the Fornes say they wouldn't have it any other way. 

"He was a big surprise to be born on my birthday and it has been really great to celebrate our birthdays together," Nancy says.

"And we hope to have another one. Many more," Paul adds.

Each leap year, the family takes off work so they can spend their holiday together.

They now look forward to celebrating again in 2012.
