LAFAYETTE, Ind. — For this family Christmas Eve is more than just a holiday.

The Kelly family welcomed their first baby on Monday, Christmas Eve, meaning their daughter and them now all share the same birthday.

WLFI said Amber Kelly gave birth to her daughter Violet Noel on Dec. 24, at IU Health Arnett Hospital.

However, Amber and her husband Sean still can’t believe she was born on that day.

“I still am in disbelief,” Sean said to WLFI. “I didn’t believe she was going to come early, especially that early on the 24th. That was surprising to me.”

Violet was supposed to be born on Jan. 8.

“I mean very rarely do we see where everybody has the same birthday, so that in itself I think it’s really cool and something to be celebrated,” said nurse Alicia Wozniak.
