A trio of American siblings have equalled a world record - after they were each born on three consecutive leap year days.
David and Louise Estes' daughter Jade was born on Wednesday morning in Provo, south of Salt Lake City, Utah.
It came four years after their son Remington was born on February 29, 2008, and eight years after their son Xavier was born on the same day in 2004.

Baby Jade was already five days overdue when doctors induced labour and the family hit the elusive date.
'I have never gone over so I wasn't sure if she was going to wait,' Mrs Estes told The Daily Herald of Provo. 'As soon as we passed midnight I knew it really, really could happen.'
The only other known case of triple Leap Day babies is the Henriksen family of Norway, which logged February 29 births in 1960, 1964 and 1968, according to the Guinness World Records.
