However, while the thought of a chilled-out Thanksgiving no doubt appealed to Gregory, she wasn’t buying her doctor’s estimations. She had her own idea about when her daughter would arrive. And it just so happened to be a date very close to her heart.
“I just had this feeling she was going to come on my birthday,” Gregory revealed. The expectant mom was born on November 19. So, for her daughter to arrive on the same day she’d have to be born slightly early. And sure enough, she was.
Remarkably, Gregory’s hunch paid off. Theresa arrived on November 19, 1986. This, of course, meant she would share a birthday with her mother for the rest of her life. It was a coincidence that, over the years, would grow to mean a lot to the family.
