Pakistani family sets Guinness World Record for same birthdays
A Pakistani family has made history after they set a Guinness World Record under “most family members born on the same day” category as all nine family members share the same birthdays, August 1.
This unique feat has secured by Amir Azad Mangi and his family from Larkana, surpassing the record previously held by an American family of five members, who had held the Guinness record since 1966.
The record-holder family consists of Amir Azad Mangi, his wife Khadija, and their seven children, including two sets of twins.
Mr. Mangi was born on Aug. 1, 1968, his wife on Aug. 1, 1973, their first daughter Sindhu on Aug. 1, 1992, twin daughters Sassi and Sapna on Aug. 1, 1998, first son Amir on Aug. 1, 2001, second son Ambar on Aug. 1, 2002, and twin sons Amar and Ahmer on Aug. 1, 2003.
