A Pakistani family has made unique history after they set a Guinness World Record under the “most family members born on the same day” category as all nine family members share the same birthday, 1st August.
Amir Azad Mangi and his family from Larkana surpassed 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 1st August 1968, his wife on 1st August 1973, their first daughter Sindhu on 1st August 1992, twin daughters Sassi and Sapna on 1st August 1998, first son Amir on 1st August 2001, their second son Ambar on 1st August 2002, and twin sons Amar and Ahmer on 1st Aug 2003.
Interestingly, Mr. Mangi’s wedding anniversary falls on the same day, making it a significant date for the entire family.
The children not only share their birthday with their father but also their passion for learning and have been enrolled in higher education institutes, mainly in the fields of engineering and science.
It took the family three years to finally be recognized and dethrone American citizens Carolyn and Ralph Cummins.
The family was notified by the Guinness Book of World Records in December 2020 that their verification has been completed.
The certificate was processed in March 2021 and he received it in July.
