Newborn baby will celebrate birthday once every four years

Maddie Lyn Hanley was born Wednesday morning at Lexington Medical Center.

LEXINGTON (WACH) -- Itâ??s a very special day for leap year babies.

For the first time in four years, theyâ??re getting to officially celebrate a birthday.

Maddie Lynn Hanley is one of the newest leap year babies. She was born at Lexington Medical Center Wednesday morning.

Her parents, Corey and Bethany Hanley, say it makes her even more unique.

Bethany says Corey already has a plan to use his newborn daughterâ??s February 29 birthday to his advantage.

â??He says because sheâ??s a leap year baby, she canâ??t date until sheâ??s a certain age,â?? said Bethany Hanley. â??But thatâ??s counted by leap years and not regular years.â??

The Hanleyâ??s plan to celebrate Maddieâ??s birthday either on February 28 or March 1, and give her big parties every four years.

Lexington Medical Center spokeswoman Jennifer Wilson says seven babies were born at the hospital Wednesday.
