Heather Perol and Brandon Moody of Belfast with their first child, Aurora, who was born on Brandon’s birthday.

Belfast — On March 2, 1992, Brandon Moody of Belfast was born at Waldo County General Hospital and he was thrilled when his first child, Aurora, was born on March 2, 2014, also at Waldo County General Hospital.

Heather Perol, Aurora’s mother, had a due date of March 7 so the couple had talked a few times about the possibility of the baby being born on Brandon’s birthday but the conversation always ended with “What are the odds?” Especially since this was Heather’s first pregnancy and first babies are often late.

But when Heather woke Brandon up around 3 a.m. on March 2 and said her water had broken, Brandon says, “I was so excited.”

And when Aurora was born at 12:31 p.m., he was ecstatic. “How can you top that for a birthday present? We’ll have two names on our birthday cake.”

Brandon’s mother was also thrilled as she became a grandparent for the first time, even though Brandon is the youngest child in his family. The only problem: Brandon says his mother can’t figure out what to get him for a birthday present that can top his daughter arriving on his birthday.
