Twin sisters give birth to three baby sons within minutes of each other
Twins often dress the same, talk the same, and remain incredibly close throughout their lives – however not all sets of twins match their lives up quite this closely.
Identical twins Amanda Caston and Julia Baldree, both 27, gave birth within minutes of each other on the same day – despite being due nearly a month apart.
The similar siblings, from Farragut, Tennessee, didn’t plan the double birth – it was a complete coincidence.
The sisters have been really close since they were kids, and when they fell pregnant around the same time, they were excited their kids would be close in age – but they never expected to welcome their babies at almost the same time.
In fact, Julia was due 20 days after Amanda – on April 22. But both women went into labour early. Amanda gave birth to her son, Miles, while Julia welcomed twin boys, named Josiah and Carter, on March 28.
Amanda was induced on the 27th but didn’t end up delivering her son until the next day – at almost exactly the same time that Julia gave birth via c-section.
‘We were texting and Facetiming up until the hour before and the hour after they were born,’ Amanda told WBIR. She added that she loved growing up with a twin sister.
‘We used to always trick our dad and he would never be able to tell the difference,’ said Amanda. ‘We always had somebody to play with or argue with, it was a lot of fun.’
The sisters are now hoping their three boys will get on like a house on fire, and love growing up together.
‘We’ve all just had girls, everyone’s just had girls and then, surprise! Three boys,’ Amanda added.
‘It’s not often that you hear of twins having twins and another on the same day within the same hour and all being boys.
‘They’ll always have best friends to hang out with through childhood, like we did. I hope they realise how much their family loves them because we love all of them very much and it’s exciting to have all three of them within the family.’
