A mum who gave birth to a New Year’s baby last year had an extra reason to celebrate the start of 2012. Canadian Bobbi Jo Ketcheson, 28, gave birth on the first day of the year for a second time. Her baby girl, Grace Olivia was born exactly one year and four minutes after son Jack arrived.
“I don’t know if I’d call it lucky, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles I guess,” said Bobbi. “My poor kids have to share a birthday,” Bobbi added.
Baby Grace was born in Medicine Hat, Canada, and became the city’s first baby of 2012. Like her older brother, little Grace wasn’t expected to arrive so soon. She actually wasn’t due until February.
Bobbi and husband Kurtis, 28, also have two other children under the age of 4.
