Three’s the charm for the Stevenson family. The North Dakota family welcomed baby Henry on Sept. 1, their third child born on the same date the third year in a row, the Dickinson Press reports. And that’s not all. In a tangle of threes, Seth and Lauren Stevenson were married in 2013, after a three-day engagement, three months after they met. The newest Stevenson was due Sept. 4, but in a spectacular bit of numerical synchronicity, Henry came three days early. “I can’t believe it’s actually the same,” Lauren Stevenson told the Dickinson Press. The other Stevenson kids, Axel, born in 2014, and sister Tommie, born in 2015, have spent their first birthdays in the hospital. Next Sept. 1, the family is planning to do it up for the trio.

“We’re just going to have one big party, one big bounce house, give each of them a separate cake and their own presents,” Stevenson said. As lucky as the number three has been for the family, it looks like the Stevenson troika can count on a fourth—but not next year. “I plan on having another one,” says the new mom. “I think we’re going to give ourselves a little of a break so we can watch our kids grow for a few years, and then maybe go from there.” (This trio made history.)
