Twins welcome baby girls on same day
Could it be a twin thing? Twin siblings Chris and Christina Meeko, 29, had babies in different parts of Canada on the same day in May.
On May 30, Chris welcomed baby girl Leah at 11 a.m. in Nunavut in northern Canada, while Christina had twins Makaila and Brianna at 12 p.m. in Winnipeg in Western Canada, CBC reported on Sunday, June 9.
Baby Leah makes six for Chris, while Christina now has seven kids with Makaila and Brianna.
Interestingly, both Chris’ girlfriend, Kelly Naulalik, and Christina missed their due dates. Kelly was expected to have Leah on May 26, while Christina was due to have the twins on June 9.
Christina’s partner, Gordon Qavvik, also has twins in his family. She says her girls are fraternal twins and can already see their different personalities.
Christina says giving their kids the same birthday isn’t on purpose, noting that there are kids in their family who are born in the same year.
Their mom, Sarah Meeko, told CBC that raising twins had its challenges, but that it was “rewarding.” She recalled that Chris and Christina “did everything together. They were always together.” Niña V. Guno /ra
