SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (WTNH) — A local woman gave birth to her second child Wednesday, all while celebrating her own birthday, as well as her first son’s.

That’s right, all three born on the same date.

Tasheena Salvary, of Amsterdam, went into labor three weeks early — four hours later she delivered son Antonio Joejito Castro Jr. Now she, Antonio, and 9-year old Xzorion Velez will now share the special day with each other.

“Everybody kept saying, ‘No, you’re not going to make it. It would be crazy if you have him on your birthday,’ and I kept saying,’No, don’t jinx me. No, like he’s got to make it,’ and this is what happened,” said the happy mother.

A Bellevue manager said in her 30 years of working in maternity services, she’s never seen a mom share a birthday with two of her children.

Salvary, Xzorion, and Anotonio are doing well and are marveling at the coincidence, according to Bellevue Woman’s Center.

Tasheena says it’s going to be a challenge to hold three birthdays on one day, but they will manage.
