Reece celebrated his 12th birthday on December 12, 2012.
The phenomenon won’t happen again for another century — until 2101 when it’s 01/01/01.
Reece, the son of Deniliquin’s Angela and Paul Hussey, said it was ‘‘really cool’’ to celebrate a birthday on a day as special as Wednesday.
Mrs Hussey said they realised the unique date in June.
‘‘It didn’t dawn on us until half way through the year,’ she said.
‘‘He’s the last person this century to be able to have a birthday like his .
‘‘He might not realise its significance yet, but it’s definitely one he’ll be telling the grandchildren.
‘‘He was (born) overdue by 10 days — he turned up on the 12th and here we are 12 years later.’’
To mark Wednesday’s occasion, the birthday boy received a basketball, wakeboard and more.
‘‘He’s been really excited. He wasn’t due for a party this year but when we realised we thought we better have one,’’ Mrs Hussey said.
Reece had a pool party with his friends on Wednesday afternoon, and was joined by his family and family friends that evening.
