Man, son and grandson share b'day

Benjamin Fox was born on May 8 and he shared the birthday with his father Lee and grandfather Harry Fox. Bookmakers have worked out the odds of three generations of boys being born on the same day as 272,910 to one.

Lee was born on May 8, 1975 and Harry was born on May 8, 1949. Lee 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 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, so we never thought for a moment that the baby would be born on mine and my dad’s birthday. We are going to have some brilliant birthday parties in the future.”
