SMH Delivers a Dozen Leaplings

Mar/01/2012

A dozen leaplings made their world debut yesterday at Sarasota Memorial Hospital — February 29 — a date which only comes once every four years.

A person who is born on February 29 may be called a “leapling” or a “leap year baby.” Among some of the famous persons to share this same birthday was Pope John Paul III, Mark Foster of the pop band Foster the People and American rap artist and actor Ja Rule.

What are the chances of being born Feb. 29?
About 1 in 1,461, according to the Honor Society of Leap Year Babies.
