Meet the Big Apple mom, dad, and son, all born on November 1

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

NEW YORK - A family of three-mom, dad and son-in the New York City have a special connection-they all had been born on November 1.

The Bronx baby-Riley La Ra turns one on November 1 and the biggest decision for his parents will be whether to have one cake or three.

“It’s the best birthday gift we could ever get,” the New York Daily News quoted Riley’s mum, Keri La Ra, who was born 30 years to the day before her son, as saying.

“Either he’s going to be extremely happy he shares this amazing bond with us or he’ll request a different birthday,” she joked.

Keri La Ra met her husband, Thomas La Ra at a wedding in 2004, and the fact that they shared birthdays gave them an instant connect.

“We knew there was something between us. The chance of meeting someone who has your birthday are slim to none,” she said.

The Riverdale couple married in 2006. They decided to have a baby in 2008 and tried for months before Keri La Ra got pregnant.

Two doctors gave them different due dates: One said Oct. 29, the other estimated Oct. 30.

“I said, ‘No way it’s going to happen on Nov. 1. What are the odds? And then it happened,” recalled the mum. (ANI)
