Aimee Nelson and Ashlee Nelson are identical twins who both gave birth on December 31, 2012 at Summa Akron City Hospital in Ohio.
Aimee gave birth to Donavyn Scott Bratten, who was 7 pounds, 2 1/2 ounces and measured 21 inches long, reports the Akron Beacon Journal.
Ashlee gave birth to Aiden Lee Alin Dilts two hours later. He weighed 8 pounds, 12 ounces and measured 22 1/2 inches long.
Grandmother Marcella Farson told the Akron Beacon Journal that the babies have post-Christmas presents waiting for them under the tree: “They got little outfits, snowsuits, rattles, little toys, and they got their first Hot Wheels cars. They weren’t even here yet and they got their first gifts from Santa.”
The same-day birth wasn’t planned as the new moms’ due dates were about a week apart.
Farson recalled raising twins Ashlee and Aimee: “When they got to their individuality stage, I allowed them to do what they wanted, and they did for the most part. But the funny part is that nine times out of 10, one would come home with one thing purple and the other one would do the same thing but pink.”
