VB.NET - Getting random date that falls between specific M/D/Y range

I'm trying to make a function that can return a random DOB between a specific Month, Day & Year range

for example

DOB between 5/25/1981 - 4/14/1985

random result could be: 01/22/84
random result could be: 4/13/85

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

try this
        Dim dtOne As New DateTime(2008, 1, 1)
        Dim dtTwo As New DateTime(2008, 1, 31)
        Dim ORandomNumber As New Random()
        Dim iTotalDays As Int16
        iTotalDays = DateDiff(DateInterval.Day, dtOne, dtTwo)
        Dim dtRandomDate As DateTime
        dtRandomDate = dtOne.AddDays(ORandomNumber.Next(iTotalDays))
