Three Ohio sisters have defied odds by giving birth on the same day in the same hospital with the same obstetrician overseeing their deliveries, per the AP. Daneesha Haynes, Ariel Williams, and Ashley Haynes gave birth July 3 at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital within a four-and-a-half-hour span, the Mansfield News Journal reports. A 1998 AP story cited the odds of three sisters giving birth the same day as 1 in 50 million. "It was a blessing," Daneesha Haynes said. "It's amazing. This kind of blew everybody away."

All three sisters had their deliveries induced. Daneesha wasn't due until July 23. Dr. Edroy McMillan delivered all three babies. He declined to be interviewed. Williams was the first to give birth that day, naming her 8-pound, 2-ounce daughter Sincere. Ashley Haynes followed with her 6-pound, 10-ounce son Adrion. Daneesha Haynes completed the trifecta with daughter Emrie, who weighed in at 4 pounds, 14 ounces.
