On July 19, after 24 1/2 hours of labor, Jacquie and Paul Parker delivered their first child. Baby Mason was welcomed to the world with a weird birthday coincidence – Mom, Dad and baby Mason all share the same birthday!
Mason’s due date was Wednesday, July 20th. Jacquie started experiencing cramping and then went into labor on Monday.
“I never thought it would actually happen,” said Jacquie Parker.
Recovering Wednesday at the New Hyde Park hospital from 24 1/2 hours of labor, the ebullient mom exclaimed, “I feel wonderful!”
Mason tipped the scale at 8 pounds, 4 ounces and measured 20 1/2 inches long.
“We had too many people cheering us on to get it done before midnight,” said Paul Parker. “It was a race against the clock.”
My husband and our first son share a birthday. My son was a week late and originally had thought there was NO way that him and my husband would share a birthday. Whoops!
