These identical twin sisters both gave birth to their first child early Thursday.

Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers were due within four days of each other.

Their babies were born at the exact same time in each sister’s respective time zone — Leah gave birth first, welcoming a baby boy at 1:18 a.m., in Denver, Colorado, and Sarah’s  daughter was born at 1:18 a.m., in La Jolla, California.

“We’ve always lived in separate places, but all of us — we have two sisters — are very close in age and very close,” Leah said. “But certainly there’s another connection at the twin level.”

The sisters learned they were pregnant last year around the same time.

“We were at our older sister’s wedding recently, and, well, two pregnant chicks together, people couldn’t stop talking about this,” Rodgers said. “They kept asking us, ‘Was it planned?’ No! It was kind of entertaining.”

Congratulations girls!

  • I have heard of this happening with both being born in the same hospital.
    Imagine the jubilation at the hospital. What’s more the babies looked like their Mums too. How often would that happen.
    I heard about an occasion when sister-in-laws gave birth within minutes of each other too. Sheer coincidence but true. They weren’t in the same hospital
