JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Emory Johns Creek Hospital welcomed two babies on Leap Day, Feb. 29.
The babies born on this day, known as “leaplings,” will have to wait another four years to celebrate their birthdays.
One of the newborns, baby girl Reina was born at 4:34 p.m. She weighed 8 pounds and was 21 inches tall. Reina’s parents, Oriana and Stephen, say their daughter came a little early; she wasn’t expected until March 11.
“Birthdays will be interesting, that’s for sure,” Oriana said. “We’ll just have to celebrate the whole month of February!”
Reina’s dad, Stephen, said during leap years her birthday celebration will be extra special.
