This parents were Surprised To See Their New Baby Share The Same Birthday As His Dad And Great-grandfather

Beauden Matthew James Eppard 
What do we call this....miracle, wonders or what have you? You may call it anything you like but, this is just awesome for this precious family. I guess they are just lucky. 

People always say like father like son. But this time, it is like great-grandfather, like grandson and like great-grandson. Hope that really matches. 

On  the 1st of July, 2017, Connor and Jordyn Eppard added another number to the family in the person of a new bouncing baby boy. 

Beauden Matthew James Eppard arrived 17 days early via cesarean section. Despite his premature delivery, he was a healthy 8-pound, 11-ounce baby. And a special baby at that.

The new baby, Beauden, his father, Connor James Eppard, and his great-grandfather, James Elmer Morissette, share the same name but not only same, also they share same birthday too. 

Beauden Matthew James Eppard, born July 1, shares the same birthday as his father and great-grandfather.

Beauden’s chance birth makes him the third generation of men in the family with a July 1 birthday

“When we found out last fall that we were going to have a little baby, it just happened that the due date was close,” Connor, 27, who lives in Littleton, Colorado, told TODAY. “We kind of joked about having all three of us on the first, but didn't really take it seriously.”

About two weeks before to Beauden’s due date, Jordyn went in for a routine ultrasound. Beauden’s head, shoulders and stomach were enlarged. His length hadn’t changed, so doctors weren’t too worried.

“We kind of joked about having all three of us on the first, but didn't really take it seriously.”

But later that night, after returning to a brand new home in Littleton, Jordyn went into labor.

“I did not want him to come on the first at all, because it was 17 days early. That can sometimes cause problems.” Jordyn told TODAY. “For me, I just wanted him to be healthy more than anything.”

Thankfully, Beauden is healthy, but his birth was not the easiest. His size would have made a vaginal delivery difficult and dangerous. At one point during Jordyn’s labor, he got stuck in her birth canal. That’s when doctors began to push for an emergency C-section.

At about 2 p.m., Connor’s grandfather, Morrisette, received a phone call.

“Hey grandpa, you might want to sit down for a second,” Connor told TODAY, remembering the call.

Morrisette and his wife could hear the baby crying in the background. He was speechless. She was ecstatic. Hours later, they arrived at the hospital to welcome baby Beauden. Full Reading Here
