Identical twin sisters give birth on the same day

At the exact same time!

What are the odds!
Identical twin sisters Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers always had an unbreakable bond, but never did they expect to fall pregnant at the same time, only to give birth on the same day at the EXACT same time!
From different US cities in different time zones, both women gave birth to their first bubs on June 30 at 1.18am.
Sarah welcomed a baby girl, Samantha Lynne in La Jolla, California, while Leah met her baby boy Reid Joseph in Denver, Colorado.
Leah pictured here with her husband Kyle, welcomed her bub first.
"It's that magical twin connection I suppose," Sarah told People of the uncanny coincidence.
"There have just been certain things in our life where things just match up – it's odd."
"We didn't plan being pregnant at the same time. But our journeys aligned, even giving birth! Twins have a special bond, it's hard to explain."

Recalling the moment the 35-year-olds discovered the baffling news while celebrating Thanksgiving, Leah, who is 11 minutes older than her sister, said: "I wanted it to be a surprise, but when she showed up at the door – it was the funniest thing – but as soon as I saw her, I knew she was pregnant too."
"I can't explain it, I just knew."
Sarah planned on letting Leah have her celebratory moment to herself, but when she discovered that they were only due four days apart, she simply couldn’t hold it in any longer.
“I ran down the hallway and got the ultrasound pic out of my purse and slapped it down next to Leah’s.”
“We were jumping up and down, just so happy for each other. Everyone was just in shock,” she said to Today.
Exactly one hour later at the same local time, Sarah, pictured with her husband Nick, met her newborn.
"It's a really cool thing to be able to share," says Leah. "The adventure will only continue as our babies share the same birthday like we did! We can't wait for them to grow up together."
Both Leah and Sarah have since returned from hospital and are making plans to introduce their babies, who will no doubt share a close bond, as soon as they can!
Congratulations, Leah and Sarah!
