Newlyweds Discover They Were Born The Same Day At Same Hospital

A loving couple met online and instantly felt a connection. The two eventually found out that they were born on the same day, but had no idea they were born in the same exact place!

Meeting Online

Jamie and Anthony Burkett, who were married on April 14, 2018, found each other on Tinder. After swiping right, they managed to exchange numbers to get to know each other a little better.

The Knot

Even over the phone, there were instant sparks. But soon, they would be really surprised at their similarities!

An Interesting Coincidence

The two were already from nearby towns in Louisiana, but Jamie soon discovered another thing they had in common. While texting, Anthony’s email address popped up in the contact section.

The Knot

Jamie noticed that Anthony’s email address included the numbers 1-14-93, which was his birthday. Turns out that was Jamie’s birthday too! Not only that, the two were both left-handed. It’s not exactly uncommon for people to share the same birthday and writing hand, but the next coincidence they discovered really threw them for a loop! 

A Surreal Discovery

Since they were close to each other in Louisiana and born on the same day, Anthony was curious about where Jamie was born. On their first date, he asked her which hospital she was born in. Jamie stated that it was East Jefferson General Hospital in Metairie, LA. Anthony was stunned to silence because that was his birthplace too!

The Knot

Yup, the two lovebirds were born in the exact same hospital on the same day. After digging up their birth certificates, the couple saw that Anthony was born first at 11:35 a.m. while Jamie was born later in the evening at 6:09 p.m. Both of them also weighed 8 pounds, 7 ounces!

Jamie and Anthony look at the wild coincidences as pure fate. Now, 25 years after their births, they tied the knot and look forward to spending the rest of their lives together!
