Ian Ziering Welcomes Baby Daughter #2 on Daughter #1's Birthday

Awww! 18

Ian Ziering baby tweet

Former '90210' star and up and coming Chippendales headliner Ian Ziering, 49, sent this touching tweet in the wee hours last night, as he basked in his new-dad-again glory and longed to share his girls with his late parents. Awww. Ziering and his wife Erin Ludwig welcomed their second daughter on April 25, and clearly Dad Ian is full of pride and love.

And here's the coolest part! Their new baby girl arrived on her older sister Mia Loren's second birthday. Yep, the two sisters share a birthday! How sweet is that?

Little Penna Mae Ziering arrived at 9:21am and weighed at 6 lbs., 9 oz. Penna's named for Ian’s late dad, Paul, and after her mom Erin, too. Mae is Erin's middle name, one passed down through four generations of women in her family. 

As for celebrating the second April 25th birthday in a row, Ziering says, “We didn’t plan it! Mia was born a week late and Penna was a week early." Sounds like big sister is thrilled with her birthday present, too. "When she saw Penna she said, ‘Baby sister!’”

What a special thing -- sharing your birthday with your sister! Well, that is until they each turn 5 and they become totally pissed about having to share anything with anyone. LOL. Of course, I think, more often than not, it'll always be a really cool thing for them to share their special day.

Congratulations to Ian and Erin and Happy Birthdays to Mia and Penna!

Do you or your kids share their birthday with any family members?

My aunt was born in my mom's 1st birthday and they love it now. The crazy thing is that they look so similar they get mistaken for twins

That is so cool that they're exactly 2 years apart!

My brother and I share a birthday, but he is 4 years older. It wasn't fun growing up, because people always got us gifts that we had to share, or we had to do mixed themed birthday parties- it was not a lot of fun. Now we're just glad we can't forget the other's birthday.

My Dad, his brother, my sister and my nephew all share the same birthday, Sept 30th. I share a birthday with a friend of mine. We were both pregnant at the same time and ended up having our sons on the same day
