Twin sisters give birth to New Year’s Eve babies
CHICAGO—Twin sisters in Ohio gave birth to two baby boys two hours apart on New Year’s Eve, a newspaper reported Wednesday.
Identical twins Aimee and Ashlee Nelson, 19, used to dress alike as young girls and both got pregnant about the same time, the Akron Beacon Herald reported.
Aimee’s son — Donavyn Scott Bratten — was born at 12:11 pm on Monday. Ashlee’s son — Aiden Lee Alan Dilts — arrived at 2:03 pm.
And to make things even easier for visiting relatives, they were both delivered in the same place — Summa Akron City Hospital.
The sisters weren’t planning same-day births and were due about a week apart, their mother told the paper.
While they stopped dressing alike once they got older, they often ended up doing the same things without planning it, Marcella Farson said.
“The funny part is that nine times out of 10, one would come home with one thing purple and the other one would do the same thing but pink.”
That carried over to the pregnancy, Farson told the paper.
“Within the past two months, me being the mother, I would get a whiny phone call in the middle of the night on what’s going on and I would hang the phone up and literally five minutes later I would have the other one crying.”
Aimee called her mother at 4 am Monday to say she was headed to the hospital. About two hours later Ashlee called her mother to say the same thing.
