SCOTTSDALE -- A Scottsdale family is celebrating a very special birthday! Baby Ava was born on October 14, making her the third generation to share that birthday.

Her grandpa, Thomas Keel, celebrated his 76th birthday on that same day.  And her dad, Andy Keel, marked his 41st birthday on the same day as well!

Thomas calls Ava's birth the best birthday present he's ever had. And dad Andy Keel is still in shock, since Ava wasn't due until the 24th. "I tell you it's crazy," Andy says. "It was really so unexpected."

To make her birth even more extraordinary, Ava is the first girl born into the Keel family in 49 years. 

Our congratulations go out to the family!
