    ROCKFORD � A southwest Michigan couple shouldn't have too hard a time remembering their children's birthdays. After all, it's as easy as eight, nine, 10. Or more specifically, 8/8/8, 9/9/9 and 10/10/10.

    Chad and Barbie Soper's three kids were born on those dates. The most recent, Cearra Nicole, was born this past Sunday.

    Barbie Soper, 36, said she often is asked whether the couple manipulated the birth dates. The answer is no. Well, sort of.

    The Sopers' first child, Chloe Corrin, arrived exactly on the couple's due date. But the second baby, Cameron Dane, was born with induced labor ahead of the Sept. 20 due date.

    Cearra came early because Soper's physician wanted to prevent potential health complications. The original due date was Nov. 4.

    "At some point, probably 20 weeks into the pregnancy, we decided it was better for her to deliver early," Dr. Andrew Van Slooten told The Grand Rapids Press. "There is this window we had. We definitely had the option to shoot for that (Oct. 10) day and did.

    "But it wasn't like delivering her three weeks early just to hit that date."

    Soper told the newspaper she's excited about her children's unique birth dates and that they "all get to share in it."

    The big question, though, is: What are the chances of an 11/11/11 baby?

    "Definitely no," Soper said. " ... We wanted three, and I'm glad we have that."

    10/10/10 was a Sunday.  What doctor SCHEDULES a delivery on a Sunday??? 

    My point being, they were all in on it.

      It would be the most probable answer, Ihave friends who did much the same thing on a smaller scale by ensuring a christmas baby from the timing of hte conception to inducing the birth around the right date but aiming at the minutes after midnight of the new christmas day.  At least they were honest about it smile

    That's the thing....I think it's one of the coolest things ever....I'm big on dates like that.  I got married on 8/8, tens years later my son was born on 11/11.   The years weren't that cool....but if I could have made it work out that way, I might have tried it.  The thing is to just say that's what you're doing.  LOL
