    A baby born late Tuesday night on Long Island was a true gift to his parents -- all three now share the same birthday.

    Mason Parker arrived at 11:30 p.m. at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, becoming the third member of the family to have the July 19 birthday.

    Parents Jacquie and Paul were planning to spend their birthdays with a relaxed celebratory dinner because Mason wasn't due until Wednesday.

    But he arrived a little early as a special gift.

    During the labor, the couple "received hundreds of messages cheering us on, saying 'You're running out of time, we don't know if you're going to get the trifecta before the end of the day,'" Paul Parker said at the hospital on Wednesday.

    "Best birthday ever," he added.

    Next year, Jacquie Parker said, there will be a "big, big party."
