These celebrity leaplings are much younger than you think


Once every four years, we get an extra day added to our calendars on Feb. 29 to both catch us up with the Gregorian calendars and to confuse us for 24 hours. For some, though, it's not just another day — it's their birthday! Yes, those born on Leap Day age just like we do, but they only get to really celebrate every four years. We did the math, and the odds of being born on Leap Day are one in 1,461. That makes these celebrity leaplings even more special.
