Man with wife born on leap year glad he only has to remember birthday every 4 years

Nashville, TN - James Tillman woke up anxious on Monday, March 1, feeling like he had forgotten something very important the day before. Minutes later, it occurred to him while brushing his teeth; today would be his wife's birthday... if it were a leap year.

"I felt so relieved," said James. "I'm glad I only have to remember it every four years."

Ann is among only 0.07 percent of the U.S. population born on Leap Year Day. She was born on February 29, 1960.

According to a close family friend, the last time the couple celebrated Ann's birthday was in 1996 when Ann turned 14 (56 in standard years). They missed celebrating in 2020 due to the pandemic.

James says he has already added an appointment on his calendar for February 2024 to remind him of her special day, so he'll be sure to get her a nice card or something.
