DAVENPORT, Iowa – Ellie Marie has an extra-special birthday, since hers only happens once every four years.

She was born on Leap Day, February 29, 2016.

Her parents say she was due March 29, but mom Nichole’s water unexpectedly broke Sunday night.  Ellie Marie was born at 9:27 a.m. Monday.

Nichole says they’ll celebrate the birthday on March 1 when it isn’t a Leap Year.
