Sisters Libby and Lacey Harris both gave birth on the same night at the same birth center, the unusual event has been shared by BBC News on Saturday.
The sisters gave birth with a span of five hours with families rushing through different rooms to witness the birth of the children who were named Lola-Mae and Joshua.
Twenty-year-old Libby brought Lola-Mae to the world with a 6lbs 40z weight at 23:42 BST on Wednesday. Sixteen-year-old Lacey, on the other hand, had Joshua who weighed 6lbs 12 oz at 04:50 on Thursday.
Libby said having a pregnancy with her younger sister was “so lovely” as they can share all the experiences of new mothers which went extra special because they were sisters.
Gillian Brandon, the senior midwife, described the event as “unusual but exciting time” for the new moms and the staff involved in the successful delivery.
“We send our best wishes to the sisters, their little ones and the family,” she said.
