Twin Sisters Both Give Birth On Same Day, 1 Room Apart

They didn't plan their pregnancies, but did schedule their induction dates together.

Twin sisters Danielle Grant and Kim Abraham have shared a birthday for all of their 32 years on Earth.

Now their sons will as well.

Grant and Abraham each gave birth to a baby boy on April 22 ― one room apart from each other.

The fraternal twins were born one minute apart from each other, and their sons were delivered a few hours of one another, according to the Asbury Park Press.

Grant gave birth to 8-pound, 12-ounce Roman at 11:42 a.m. while Abraham delivered 9-pound, 12-ounce Aaron at 3:21 p.m.

Fraternal twins Danielle Grant and Kim Abraham often wore the same outfits growing up, but they insist they didn’t plan to give birth at the same time.

Growing up, the twins often wore the same outfits, but they insist they didn’t plan to give birth at the same time.

“Total coincidence,” Grant told the paper. “We both wanted babies, but we didn’t think we would get pregnant the same time. This was not planned.” 

The sisters do admit doing a little orchestration on the birthday. Both women were overdue and their doctors gave them the option of scheduling their induction dates. They chose the same date.

Grant, who already has a 2-year-old daughter, but Abraham is a first-time mom.

Abraham quipped, “Listen, if I could have gone four hours earlier, I definitely would have done that.”

Romeo and Aaron may be cousins, but they can expect to spend a lot of time together, according to The Associated Press.

Grant and Abraham plan to hold joint birthday parties for their sons and dress them in matching outfits.

Last July, twin sisters Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers, both 35, each gave birth at the same time: 1:18 a.m.

They were in different hospitals, though: Rodgers was in Denver while Mariuz was in La Jolla, California.

In the winter of 2016, Utah identical twins Kelli Wall and Kerry Bunker took “twinning“ to new heights by each giving birth to their second sets of twins, about six weeks apart from one another.

Wall’s twins, Kyler and Kenadee, were born on January 11 and Bunker’s pair, Kash and Jace, were born on February 13.
