Hege Jeanette Oksnes, a 29-year-old mother, has some pretty cute good luck charms… her babies! Every time she has had a baby, someone in her family has won the Norwegian lotto jackpot.
The first win in 2006 went to her father the day before she gave birth to her first child. Her father, Leif, won $718,000.
Then, three years later, Hege herself won the jackpot of $1.4 million the day before her second child was born. The family was astonished and dumbfounded that luck had struck their family not once but twice in less than 5 years.
Hege continued to work as a gas station attendant and other family members kept their jobs and continued with school as well. The family continued to live their lives normally, aside from the fact that they now had a couple of million more dollars than before, until this past Saturday.
Hege’s younger brother, Ford, stunned everyone yet again by winning the jackpot of $2.1 million… you guessed it, just a couple of days after Hege’s third child was born. The family thought it was a joke and did not believe the news at first.
The Oksnes’ finally came around to the idea of winning the lottery for the third time only after being shown a bank statement. The family claims that there were no special numbers picked, but instead just a random set picked by the ticket machine.
After all of this fortune, it only seems reasonable for Hege to continue to give birth to lease lucky charms, right? On the contrary, Hege says that three is her limit and they could not be happier.
What do you think of this unbelievable luck?
