LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Happy Leap Day! Feb. 29 is bringing a unique birthday for hundreds of thousands of babies worldwide. That's including some right here in Greater Lafayette.
Leap Day babies are actually not uncommon according to Franciscan Health nurses. On Saturday, we stopped by the Franciscan Hospital to meet the Lehe family. They welcomed their healthy baby girl named Clemens during the early morning hours.
The parents say her birthday will bring new traditions.
"We actually heard from another woman who's birthday is today, her family, they go on trips every four years so they go on big trips so, I'm like, well that's something to look forward to," said Carlie Lehe.
The next time these babies can celebrate on Feb. 29 is 2024.
