GILBERT, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

On September 3, a 9-pound 1-ounce girl named Everly was born at Banner Gateway Medical Center. She's perfect in every way and healthy.

You might ask yourself, well lots of babies are born every day who cares? Well, this little baby has a unique story. She shares a birthday with not only mother, but three other family members.

Kristen Cooley is Everly's mother. 

"I did want it because my whole life everyone told me that I need to have a baby on my birthday, so I kinda tried," Cooley said.

Everly shares a birthday with her great grandfather who was born in 1902, followed by her great grandma in 1930, then her grandma in 1954 and her mom in 1982. Again, all born on September 3.

Everly's grandmother Jan couldn't be more thrilled.

"I am thrilled beyond belief."
