Despite living in different cities, identical twins Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers still continued their twin bond and welcomed their babies on the same day and time!
While neither pregnancy was planned, Sarah and Leah learned that each other was expecting over Thanksgiving last year.
“She showed up to my front door and I welcomed her and Nick [Mariuz’s husband] inside,” Leah told TODAY.COM. “And I had this crazy twin intuition — I call it my ‘twintuition’ — and I knew she was pregnant, too.”
But when Sarah shared her news first, Leah let her have her moment before revealing they were due 4 days apart.
“I ran down the hallway and got the ultrasound pic out of my purse and slapped it down next to Leah’s,” Sarah recalled. “We were jumping up and down, just so happy for each other. Everyone was just in shock.”
Neither one, however, was prepared for their babies to arrive on the same day.
Leah gave birth first, welcoming Reid Joseph at 1:18 a.m., in Denver, Colorado, and Sarah’s daughter Samantha Lynne was born at 1:18 a.m., in La Jolla, California.
This is not the first time we’ve heard of this happening to twin sisters. Identical twins Aimee and Ashlee gave birth just hours apart on the same day at the same hospital, while Jessica and Joyce welcomed their babies 3 hours apart in the same room. Twin bonding at its best!
