The odds of being born in a leap year are slim, but that didn’t stop five babies from being born at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre in Barrie, Ont., on Feb. 29.

The first baby, Lexington Taylor, was born at 12:44 a.m., followed by Theron Townson at 1:50 a.m., Everly Nimmo-Booth at 1:55 a.m., Asher Strong at 2:04 p.m. and a little girl, who still hasn’t been named, at 4:01 p.m.
