Kicker – Statistically unlikely deliveries


NICK EICHER, HOST: Three sisters recently defied some long statistical odds—one in 50 million, I read: Daneesha, Ariel, and Ashley all gave birth at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital on the same day!

Sisters, delivering cousins, all within a four-and-a-half-hour span, with the same obstetrician overseeing each delivery. I hope they got a discount!

Ariel was first—a daughter.

Ashley followed—a son.

And Daneesha—a daughter, a blessing, she said, kind of amazing. It blew everybody away.

Including grandma Deborah Ware—very proud. She joked that they won’t need any extra children at the kids’ birthday parties!
