When the Eppard family welcomed the newest member of their clan, they realized something amazing about him. That’s because little Beauden’s arrival, two weeks premature, would make his birth part of a staggering statistic. There would only be one child like him in every 33,000, in fact. But what made him so special?
Well, the unusual circumstances of Beauden’s birth were set in motion not long before his due date, which had been previously estimated as July 17, 2017. When mom Jordyn went for an ultrasound a couple of weeks prior to her baby’s anticipated arrival, for instance, she received what may have come as surprising news. Basically, the scan revealed that the child’s shoulders and head were bigger than had been expected; nonetheless, since his length remained much the same, the doctors saw no cause for alarm.
This all changed, though, when Jordyn went into labor early. “We had just bought a house and moved in on [June] 29,” dad Connor subsequently told ABC News. Then, the following day, his wife’s contractions would start. And Connor now believes that the stress of moving home may have caused the birth process to begin prematurely.
