London, May 24 (IANS) A Briton, his son and his grandson have all been born on the same day and the family is now looking forward to “some brilliant birthday parties in the future”.
Benjamin Fox was born May 8 and he shared the same birthday with his father Lee and grandfather Harry Fox. Bookmakers, who have worked out the odds of three generations of boys being born on the same day, as 272,910 to one, Daily Mail reported Monday.

Lee was born May 8, 1975 and Harry was born on May 8, 1949.

Lee from Romford, Essex, said he was stunned when he was was informed that his baby was expected to be born on his birthday of May 8.

“When they did the scan and the measurements and worked out the baby would be born on May 8 I just said ‘No way, that’s my birthday and my dad’s too’.

“We were told first babies rarely arrive on their due day, they can be early and late so we never thought for a moment that the baby would be born on mine and my dad’s birthday,” he was quoted as saying.

Harry said: “The odds of one family having boys all born on the same day must be very long. It was lovely when Lee was born on my birthday. I thought that was a coincidence but I was on the golf course when I was told out Benjamin had been born on my birthday too, it’s absolutely incredible.

“We are going to have some brilliant birthday parties in the future.”
