Lily Catherine Perron was born yesterday, March 15, at Maryland's Anne Arundel Medical Center. Her father Philip was also born March 15. Her grandfather was born . . . December 15, but his father, grandfather, and great-grandmother were all born on the fifteenth of March. That makes Lily the fifth in six generations of her family to be born on the Ides of March.
Niel Perron, 63, is the odd man out, having been born exactly three months too early - Dec. 15.
But he admitted that Philip being born on March 15 wasn't entirely an accident. The timing of the pregnancy wasn't planned, but when his wife was overdue and the doctor asked when they wanted to induce, they naturally picked the first date that came to mind.
"We did cheat a little bit," Niel Perron said. [Link]
