Pa. pair born in same hospital on same day to wed
An engaged eastern Pennsylvania couple were born on the same day in the same hospital ­ and their mothers even shared a room in the maternity ward.

Amy Singley and Steven Smith were born at St. Luke's Hospital in Fountain Hill on April 17, 1986.

After the mothers were hospital roommates, the two families continued to interact through their church in Easton. Smith asked Singley on a date to the movies when they were sophomores in high school.

Singley says she knew Smith was the right guy for her after their second date. She says people are convinced the 24-year-olds were "destined to be together."

They plan to get married June 12.
