  |  0 minute read

Leap Day 2024 holds special meaning for three families from the Goshen area. They all welcomed babies born at The Birthplace at Goshen Hospital on February 29, 2024.

Isabella, Hartlynn and Donivan now share the rare birth date that comes along once every four years.

The three babies and their families are expected to be released from the hospital today.

More than 1,000 babies are born on the other 365 days of the year at The Birthplace.

Approximately 1 in 1,461 babies are born on Leap Day worldwide. Only about 5 million people – less than 0.1 percent of the population – share the unusual birthday.

Who else shares February 29 birthday with these Goshen newborns? Superman!

Hartlynn, with happy parents Nikki and Lyndon.
