MANHASSET, NY – A Long Island couple who share the same birthday were overjoyed to welcome their baby girl into the world on their festive day, making it a triple birthday celebration.
Delivering at Katz Women’s Hospital at North Shore University Hospital, Diana DiPaolo-Caputi and her husband, Maurizio Caputi, of Garden City were given a due date of April 24.
On April 21, Ms. DiPaolo-Caputi went into labor, and on April 22 at 10:35 a.m. the little birthday girl, Alessia Carmela was born, weighing in at 5 pounds, 15 ounces. The Caputis said they were “super ecstatic” about their shared birthday. They also expressed they loved the idea about the three-way family birthday so they recorded a message for Alessia and hope as she grows older she will also love the shared birthday, which falls on Earth Day.
Married three years, the couple has been celebrating their joint birthdays on a grand scale with both sides of their large families. Now, with Alessia being part of the birthday bash, Mr. Caputi said, “Next year, I think celebrating all of our birthdays will take on a wedding-like atmosphere.”
