Simply put… WOW!
The following story is more astounding than the fact that Lindsay Lohan has managed to reach 30 years of age.
Sisters Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers are identical twins.
So, naturally, the siblings share the same birthday.
But here’s the amazing part: their newborn babies do, too.
According to Today.com, the 35-year old each gave birth last Thursday morning… at 1:18 a.m.
Yes, at the exact same time.
Now, there is a technicality at play here:
Rodgers’ boy, Reid Joseph, came into the world in Denver, Colorado; while Mariuz’ daughter, Samantha Lynne, was born in La Jolla, California, which is one time zone behind.
Therefore, the the cousins were born an hour apart, although both clocks read 1:18 at the times of their birth.
Still, come on. That’s totally nuts and crazy and insane!
The sisters revealed to each other than they were expecting last winter, having not planned to get pregnant together.
"I opened the door, welcomed her into the home, but as soon as I saw her, I knew she was pregnant too,” Rodgers told People Magazine, adding:
“I wanted it to be a surprise, but when she showed up at the door – it was the funniest thing."
“I can’t explain it, I just knew. My prediction was that she was five days behind me, and it turned out her due date was four days after me.”
The sisters are still at home, recovering from their separate births and caring for their brand new babies.
But they hope to get together soon.
“We’ll definitely spend Christmas together,” Mariuz told Today.com.
Added Rodgers, also to People:
“It’s a really cool thing to be able to share. 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.”
