Twin Sisters Both Give Birth to Baby Boys on the Same Day!
Now story about twins is straight from the Believe it or Not Files!
Twin sisters in the US have both gone into labour on the same day, giving birth to baby boys just hours apart in neighbouring birthing rooms. You can’t make this stuff up, people!
Fraternal twins, Danielle Grant and Kim Abraham, 32, were born one minute apart, wore matching clothes, attended the same schools and both settled in their hometown of Toms River, New Jersey. They didn’t plan on falling pregnant at the same time, and certainly didn’t plan on having boys!
“Every single person has been like, ‘no way!’” Abraham said. “Even the nurses coming in for their shifts were like, ‘We’ve got to meet the twins.’”
Both mums had to be induced after their matching due date, April 22, came and went. Grant, who already has a two-year-old daughter, gave birth to 8-pound, 12-ounce Roman at 11:42 a.m. Abraham, a first-time mum, delivered 9-pound, 12-ounce Aaron at 3:21 p.m.
They realized they were having boys several months ago during a reveal party. They each shot off a cannon stuffed, unbeknownst to them, with blue confetti.
“We just kept one-upping the coincidences.” Abraham said. “It’s the best thing in the world. We’re real close and our husbands are real close. The boys will be like brothers.” The only thing they kind of orchestrated was the induction date. Doctors typically give overdue mothers a small range of options. Of course at that point they picked the same date. Grant went into labor first.
“My mom was in the delivery rooms for both of us, going back and forth,” Abraham said. “She was sending updates through text messages. I was getting bad contractions and nobody was coming to my room because every person was in my sister’s room. I was texting my mom, ‘Help over here!’”
The new mums are already planning on hosting joint birthday parties for their boys and dressing them in matching clothing when they can.
“We’ll dress them in the same outfit,” Grant said. “We were dressed alike but in different colors growing up, so we’re going to torture them like that, too.”
Welcome to the world, Roman and Aaron!
