A couple with the same birthday is thrilled after their twins were born—on the same day. The entire family now shares the same birthday.

Scierra Blair couldn’t believe it when her doctor revealed their babies were ready to be born ten days earlier than their due date, and she was told to go straight to the hospital to deliver the twins.

She and her partner José Ervin welcomed the babies, José Jr. and Aria, 30 minutes after midnight on August 18 in Cleveland, Ohio.

The 30-year-olds were told one of the babies were breached, Scierra would have to have a C section.

“At this point it was around 5pm and they were healthy,” recalled José, “so I suggested we wait for a few hours so they could be born on our birthday.”

They met last year when Jose “kept seeing her around” and took it as a sign to speak to her. When she revealed her birthday to be the same as his, José thought she was joking until he saw her ID—then took it as another sign they should be together.

He is “beyond happy” that they can share their big day with their children now too.

A 7-year-old from Sacramento was the unlikely savior of a 3-year-old toddler who would have certainly drowned without help.

Last week 7-year-old Massiah Browne went down to enjoy the pool at the apartment complex where he lives when he noticed out of the ordinary.

“I was just playing in the pool and then I saw a boy at the bottom of the pool,” Massiah, a second-grade student, told “Good Morning America.” “And I went to go get him.”

Swimming down into 6 feet of water, he grabbed the arm of a 3-year-old toddler whose eyes and mouth were open, and managed to pull him to the surface, where a relative of Massiah’s, 9-year-old Savannah, helped them both out onto solid ground.

Adults who had caught wind of what was happening had called 911 and raced down to help. According to ABC, Savannah’s mom performed CPR on the child who was helped to breathe again by the same Fire and Rescue arrived.

“The child was transported in critical condition with advanced life support efforts provided by Sacramento firefighters,” a spokesperson for Sacramento Fire Department said.

Massiah’s father Marcus, an Olympic boxer who represented the United States at the 2012 Olympics in London, said his son loves the water and swims like “a fish,” but that despite the surprise, it really typed who Massiah is.

“He’s super empathetic so for him to do something like that, I mean, it’s really nothing out of the norm it’s just crazy that he’s 7-years-old and he’s doing something like that.”
