When twins give birth the same day, many believe it was planned. However, Aimee and Ashlee Nelson could not have pulled this off if they tried, sources say. The identical twins gave birth on New Year's Eve just hours apart in Ohio despite having due dates a week apart.
The Huffington Post noted in its Jan. 2 report that Aimee and Ashlee's babies were born just two hours apart. Obviously, many likely thought at least one of the twins would deliver her baby on New Year's Day at the stroke of midnight. How cool that would have been, right?
While the Ohio twins gave birth the same day, their mother said the 19-year-old-girl did not time their pregnancies; it's just how things have been over the years.
"They would go shopping on two totally different occasions, not even talking each other or anything, and would end up bringing home the same thing, but opposite colors," the twins' mom said of their unique bond.
One baby was born on New Year's Eve just before the noon hour. The other was born only two hours later. Undoubtedly, birthdays will be doubly special for the two infants.
The identical twins gave birth the same day and experts say its rare indeed.
