Iowa City, IA (KCRG) — A baby born during a solar eclipse is pretty rare, but one family in Iowa has a more rare story to tell.
It turns out the mother of a baby born during the eclipse on Monday was also born during an eclipse as well.
Mother Dawn Gettler was born during a solar eclipse in 1979.
She says she and her husband didn’t plan to have their baby Monday, but baby Clair was actually a few days late.
The parents think it’s cool the way it turned out. The Gettlers are already talking about the next solar eclipse in 2024.
