On April 25, Shota and Olivia Shimamoto celebrated the birth of their new baby Rio born at the Morimoto Gynecology Clinic in Ginowan. By incredible coincidence, Rio has a four-year-old brother Rian and a two-year-old sister Rea who were also born on the same date. A total of 16,000 babies have been born in the clinic to date and director, Tetsuya Morimoto, said, “This is the first time that we have ever had three siblings with the same birthday!”

Olivia was considering giving birth to Rio on the same date as other two children but the doctor said, “Your baby will be born at a time that nature sees fit.” As it happens, the due date passed and Rio was born at around 6:00 p.m., on April 25.

Shota said, “When we had our second child, Rian, I couldn’t believe it. But it’s a miracle that our third child was also born on same date. We want these three children to grow up helping one another along the way.”

This year, Rian and Rea were not able to celebrate their birthday. “We want to have a big gathering to celebrate the three children’s birthday next year,” said Olivia.
