March 02, 2020 – The chances of being born on any given day are 1
in 365, but for “leaplings” like baby Kevin Santana, Jr.,
it’s 1 in 1,461! What is a leapling? It’s someone who celebrates
his or her birthday once every four years, because they are born on February
29, Leap Day. This is a rare occasion; little Kevin will share his birthday
with only 0.07 percent of the world’s population!
Born 12:40 a.m. at the Southeast Georgia Health System
Camden Campus Maternity Care Center, baby Kevin weighed 8 pounds 9 ounces and measured 20.25 inches long.
He was delivered by Robert D. Mixson, M.D., a board-certified obstetrician
First-time parents Arfa and Kevin Santana will need to decide if they will
celebrate his birthday on February 28 or March 1 on non-leap day years,
but no matter which day they choose, the day will be just as special as
their unique bundle of joy.
