SPRINGFIELD, Ore.-- Three leap day babies were born at RiverBend Hospital Saturday, destined to celebrate their unique birthdays once every four years.

Mariah Webb and Chris Flaherty welcomed Donald Justice Michael Flaherty to the world at 11:04 a.m. At 8 pounds and 9 ounces, Donald was born a few days later than expected, but is healthy and doing well, Flaherty said.

The parents are unsure if they will celebrate Donald's birthday on February 28 or March 1 in the future, but spring for a special bigger birthday party every leap year. They said they may even get him a car for his "fourth" birthday.

Flaherty said the family is overjoyed with Donald's arrival.
