Twins Give Birth On The Same Day To Girls (Photos)

Twin sisters in Pennsylvania stunned many after both ended up giving birth to two girls on the same day in neighboring hospital rooms.

"I feel like it's amazing. We can celebrate their birthdays together like how we celebrated our birthdays," said Nautica Smith, twin sister to Natily Smith, reports WFMZ. "It's pretty cool."

Natily had just learned Nautica was pregnant before discovering one week later she was too.

The situation became even more shocking after they learned their due dates were only one day apart.

"Everybody keeps asking if we planned it, and I'm like, 'No,'" said Natily.

The twins had already shared much of everything in life -- from their own birthdays to school sports and clothes. Then they ended up sharing the ups and downs of pregnancy together.

"I would always call and be like, 'Do you have this symptom? Like, is this normal?' And she was like, 'Yeah,'" said Natily.

Yet instead of giving birth a day apart, luck would have it they'd give birth to babies Ava and Lay'lani at Reading hospital on the same day.

"When she told me she was getting induced and then she had the baby the day I was getting induced, I wanted to cry," Nautica said.

Baby Lay'lani was born six hours after Ava.

"Kind of twin-ish, but not really," said Natily.

Naturally, they say the experience only served to bring them closer -- and it's likely it will continue to do so.

"We were FaceTiming yesterday and this morning and it was, we both got so emotional because of the experience we got to go through together," said Nautica, describing the first time the babies met.

It's not the first time twin sisters have given birth around the same time, People Magazine reports.

Despite the fact identical twin sisters, Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers, lived separately in Colorado and California, they also gave birth to their children on the exact same day.

"We didn't plan being pregnant at the same time," Mariuz said. "But our journeys aligned, even giving birth! Twins have a special bond, it's hard to explain."

"It's that magical twin connection I suppose," she added. "There have just been certain things in our life where things just match up -- it's odd."
