TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - For most of us, the most exciting days of our lives are the days our children were born. For Mark and Candace Minster, they knew their daughter Olive was a rock star the minute she was born.
But it wasn't long after birth before they learned she's also a record-breaker.
Olive was the 193rd baby to be born at Union Hospital in the month of July. That breaks the hospital's previous all-time record set back in 1978!
"What's funny is that I'd have stop and start labor for about a week, so she was really taking her time," said Olive's mother, Candace. "So we kinda joked around that she was waiting to make a big bang of a debut."
Adds her father, Mark, "Yeah, she wanted to wait long enough after the royal birth. But she also shares Harry Potter's birth."
Union Hospital nurses say their busiest day saw 14 births. They say typically July and August are their busiest birth months.
