Twin Sisters Give Birth To Babies At The Same Time

What are the chances identical twins would give birth to their first child at the exact same time?

The 35-year-old women were even in different states when they went into labour. However, each delivered their first child at the same time on June 30 this year. 

Leah Rodgers was first to go into labour in Colorado, with her identical twin sister, Sarah Mariuz, following suit in California.

Despite there being a time difference between the two American states, both of their babies were born at precisely 1:18 AM.

Leah welcomed baby boy, Reid Joseph, while Sarah had a daughter,  Samantha Lynne. 

The sisters told US TODAY they weren't really that surprised by the astonishing coincidence.

"We've always lived in separate places, but all of us - we have two [other] sisters - are very close in age and very close," Leah said. "But certainly there's another connection at the twin level."

Leah - who is the older twin by 11 minutes - even described knowing her sister was pregnant at the same time, despite Sarah not yet sharing the happy news.

Initially, the babies were estimated to arrive four days apart. However, they not only arrived on the same day - but at exactly the same time.

"I'm sure they will have a deep bond because of their birthday timing," Sarah told PEOPLE.

The heading says "at the exact same time". That's appallingly incorrect. Your article also includes the correct phrasing, that being "at exactly the same time". Please take more care.
