GREENVILLE, S.C. — These twin sisters are close. Born moments apart, now their own children have been born within minutes of each other.
Just in time for Mother’s Day.
The sisters, who live across the street from each other, learned they had the same due date, the television station reported. While the babies were originally expected next week, the sisters decided to be inducted this week, according to WYFF.
While both women were in labor, they stayed connected through FaceTime.
“We talked multiple times,” Giguere told WYFF. “We got to the point of ‘How far along are you? Well, how far along are you?’”
Dr. Mary Beck of Piedmont OB/GYN delivered both babies, the hospital said in a Facebook post.
Giguere is the older twin, and fittingly, she delivered first. Edson “Gray” Giguere was born at 4:43 p.m. EDT and weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces, WYFF reported.
Hipp delivered 35 minutes later, with Louise Springs Hipp checking in at 7 pounds, 9 ounces at 5:18 p.m. EDT, the television station reported.
“Babies Edson and Louise, moms and dads are all doing well,” Prisma Health Patewood wrote on its Facebook page. “Congratulations to this growing family.”
