While the country debated (and voted, and debated some more) about whether Barack Obama or Mitt Romney should be president, a 20-year-old woman on the other side of the world had come up with a way to unite the two forever. On Wednesday morning, Millicent Owuor, gave birth to twins in south-west Kenya. She named one brother Barack Obama and the other Mitt Romney, Kenya's Standard newspaper reported.

The new mom posed for a photo holding both babies, Barack wrapped in white and Mitt in navy blue. (Story continues below photo.)

The BBC reported that Owuor gave birth close to the village of Kogelo where President Obama's father was born. While she was preparing to deliver twins, the village was celebrating the president's reelection. According to Reuters, there were several babies born at the nearby hospital who were named after Obama. But, it appears only one has a brother named Mitt Romney.
