11th heaven for 11/11/11 birthday twins

Twins Isobel and Natalie Ireland are in 11th heaven, celebrating their 11th birthday on 11/11/11

Brixington Primary School pupils Isobel and Natalie Ireland have become local celebrities in Exmouth after it was revealed they will turn 11 on 11/11/11.

Mum, Sarah-Jane, said the twins almost celebrated separate birthdays because they arrived shortly after midnight when they were born in Plymouth – Isobel arriving first.

The pair have not let their new-found fame go to their head – celebrating their special day with friends ton Friday and a girly shopping trip to town to buy shoes, jewellery and a Wii on Saturday.

Natalie said celebrating all the 11s on the same day was ‘awesome’, adding: “Our friends keep saying it’s weird.”

The girls’ mum said it was unlikely many twins would share the unique occasion with her daughters.

Sarah-Jane said: “Most people think it’s quite lucky.
