North Barrington Family Welcomes 2nd Baby just after 2am on ‘Twosday’

1 min read

Bart Rachwal and Ursula Kopiczko welcomed their second child at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital at 2:08 a.m. on 02/22/22, a baby girl named Alexis “Lexi” Karolina Rachwal.

“We wanted two children, and our daughter arrived on ‘Twosday,’ to complete our pair,” said mom, Ursula. “It’s a magical alignment, and one that our children and grandchildren won’t see in their lifetimes.”

Weighing in at 7 lbs. 15 oz. and measuring 20 inches long, Lexi joins older brother Kane, who is a little over two and a half years old. Kane was born on a Tuesday at 1:08 a.m. in 2019.

“Both children born on the same day of the week, an hour, but years apart,” continued Kopiczko. “The universe spoke to our daughter.”

The family will bring Lexi home to North Barrington, and are thrilled with their perfect pair.
