300m-1 odds: All 3 children of Brit couple born at 7.43.

London, Jan 24 (ANI): A British couple is over the moon after the birth of their third child who entered the world exactly at 7.43.

Matt Rigby, 31, and partner Lowry Dairsley defied odds estimated at 300million to one when Harrison arrived at the same time.

According to hospital records, their first daughter Ella was born at 7.43am in October 2005.

Then Evie was born at 7.43pm on Boxing Day 2007.

But he and Dairsley were even more gob smacked last week when Harrison showed his head at 7.41am, and was finally born two minutes later.

"We were speechless when the first two were born," the Sun quoted phone banking assistant Dairsley, 26, of Salford, Greater Manchester, as saying.

"When we found I was pregnant with Harrison we joked that it would be incredible if the same happened. When I went into hospital at 5pm on Wednesday we forgot about it and concentrated on the labour.

"At 6.30am I felt the urge to push and when we next looked at the clock it was 7.41am.

"I was asked to wait for the next contraction by the midwife before she delivered him two minutes later. The doctors and midwives were speechless."

Matt added: "I looked up at the clock and it was 7.43. We couldn't believe the coincidence." (ANI)
