A pair of identical twin sisters have been spotted apparently fighting with each other while they were still in their mother’s womb.

In the trending video from China, the two foetuses were seemingly kicking and hitting each other as their mother underwent an ultrasound scan at four months pregnant.

The twins’ father, 28-year-old Mr Tao, said the footage was filmed by him when he accompanied his wife to an antenatal check late last year in the city of Yinchuan.

Mr Tao told Chinese news outlet The Paper that he found it amusing to see his unborn daughters seemingly ‘boxing with each other for a few rounds’.

He filmed the ultrasound footage before uploading it to short-video app Douyin. The video quickly went viral.

Mr Tao said he hadn’t expected his girls ‘to be internet stars before being born’.

The footage has so far received more than 2.5 million likes and 80,000 comments.

It certainly starts young!

  • Seems one is more “punchy” than the other, though who knows without seeing them all day. I doubt it’s intentional, maybe one wants more room and wonders what the other thing invading their space is. Would be interesting to see how they are while they grow up when not in the uterus.


  • How extraordinary, interesting to see how they will be with each other when they come out.


  • That is such a precious moment to capture. Scans have come a long way. I remember with one of my scan having an active bub and not getting easy measurements.


  • Ha ha something to show at their 21!


  • Ha, sibling rivalry starts early


  • Technology has certainly come a long way. Wonder if they were deciding who would be the first born.


  • That is amazing… what technology can show us is truly amazing.


  • They are so cute


  • That’s amazing!!
    All kids fight, my 2 definitely do.


  • I bet they will be the closest siblings


  • It always starts young doesn’t it?


  • We all know these moments that the inside of out bellies were like a punch ball and the movement of arms and legs were visible on the outside of our tummies. When 2 wee babies do this it may look like fighting, but they’re just moving around while they still can. A bit later in pregnancy they won’t be able to do this anymore.

    • Exactly! They are moving around and with twins there will be some pushing.


  • Omg that is just too gorgeous haha


  • haha sibling rivalry starts early! What a cool moment caught on ultrasound!


  • This is too funny, a unique bond
