“I really didn’t want her to have a Leap Day birthday,” Larvetta said. “I was hoping for either February 28 or March 1!”
But baby Lori Renee Brown was born at 1:03 this morning at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth, weighing 7 pounds, 15.3 ounces, and measuring 19 inches long. No matter what day she arrived, the important thing is that she’s happy and healthy, Larvetta said.
The Fort Worth couple plans to celebrate Lori’s birthday on March 1, and then when Leap Year comes around they’ll throw an extra-big bash to celebrate her special day.
“When she turns 4, she’ll be 1!” Lamar joked. “She’ll never feel old, she’ll always be young.”
About 5 million people worldwide share a Feb. 29 birth date today, making them "leapsters," according to a USA Today article today.
