Leap Year Baby

Thursday, March 1, 2012 - 4:57pm

Ashley Settle, an Edinburg resident gave birth to a healthy baby girl early Wednesday morning.

A leap year is implemented every 4 years to synchronize the amount of time the earth revolves around the sun in a year.  If we didn't have this, over time calendar dates would shift significantly.

The chances of being born on a leap year day are only about one in nearly every 1,500  births.

Settle says her baby's birth certificate is going to have today's date, but like most, during non-Leap Years...Settle will choose to celebrate her daughter's birthday either the day before, or after.
