Everyone is usually thrilled with the chances of meeting our birthday mates. It brings some sort of joy and connections. Now imagine having to date someone like that. Therefore, we wouldn’t have to blame this couple for taking their coincidence to a whole new level. Anthony and Jamie Burkett was not only given birth to on the same day but in the same hospital and in the same maternity ward, making them have one of the most improbable love stories ever. Maybe, it would be right to say they are a match made from heaven. Who knows?!
Realistically however, they met on a popular dating site years after and began their love journey. With more stunning surprises on the way, Jamie realized there was more than normal attraction between them when she spotted Anthony’s email. The last digits of the email was very similar to hers. 11493 was the last digits of the code that showed up on her messages from Anthony, thus it worried her imagination that they had such a thing in common.
When she spotted the similarity, she asked Anthony to confirm the suspicion and she further found out that they were given birth to on the same day. Although this is not as strange enough as a coincidence because over 19 million people in the world celebrate same birthday with someone else, they soon figured out the similarity went even deeper. Maybe weirder.
The new lovers learnt they lived in the same area and so asked deeper and further questions. This made them found out that they were actually given birth to in the same hospital, even the same maternity ward, just 17 hours apart on January 14, 1994. To add to the growing list of coincidence and surprises, they had attended the same nursery, had the same birth weight and both are left handed. The coincidence brought them closer, believing that they are meeting again for a reason, even though love is a factor. They married in a church and as Christians believed that fate has brought them together.
