Well, meet Chad and Barbie Soper, whose daughter Cearra was born on Oct. 10; whose other daughter Chloe was born on Aug. 8, 2008; and whose son Cameron was born on Sept. 9, 2009.
The family from Rockford, Mich., first got the attention of their hometown news media, but have since gone national — including an appearance Saturday on NBC's "TODAY" show.
"I thought it was neat numbers, something fun for the kids on their driver’s license – oh, your birthday has rhyming numbers," Barbie Soper said on TODAY.
"When the third one came around and it did end up on 10/10/10, I was surprised and I was happy because then the little one wouldn’t be left out."
So is 11/11/11 in the cards? Both Sopers are quick to say no.
"Definitely no," Barbie Soper earlier this week. "We wanted three and I'm glad we have that."
