A couple from Louisiana met on a dating app because they were compatible, but they didn’t realize how much they had in common. They were shocked to find out that they were born on the same day. Â But not only that, they were also born in the same hospital. This common fact brought them closer together, and earlier this week the fated couple even tied the knot.
Jamie and Anthony Burkett didn’t know that they were meeting their future spouse when they swiped right on each other on the dating app Tinder. It was Jamie who first noticed that Anthony’s email address contained the numbers 1-14-93. They were familiar numbers for Jamie because it was her birthday. And when she asked him about it; it turned out to be his birthday too.
“I asked him and he’s like, ‘Yeah, that’s my birthday,'” Jamie said. “I was just kind of like stunned for a minute. I was like, ‘That’s my birthday too.'”
“Born on the same day in the same area, so I had to ask, ‘Well, where were you born?’” Anthony said. “She told me she was born at East Jefferson General Hospital in Metairie, La., and I froze.” Anthony was shocked because that’s where he was born on that hospital too. He was born at 11:35 pm and seven hours later Jamie was born on the same hospital. They both checked their birth certificates to be sure, and they were in fact born on the same day on the same hospital.
“I’m sure we were in the nursery together,” Jamie said. “It’s just crazy.”
