- Jalynne Crawford and Janelle Leopoldo are identical twin sisters
- They fell pregnant just 4 days apart
- They also gave birth to sons on the same day at the same hospital
Two identical twin sisters from Arizona, US, gave birth to sons on the same day at the same hospital recently.
Jalynne Crawford and Janelle Leopoldo fell pregnant just four days apart, parent24.com reports. Both delivered via C-section as well, Briefly.co.za learned.
In an interview, Janelle likened the experience to opening two Christmas presents at the same time. She added, "It was a miracle."
The twins have coined a new term, "twinousins," to described their sons Bryson and Jace. It's an interplay between the words twins and cousins.
Jalynne and Janelle were given rooms next to each other during their hospital stay. The former had an easier time conceiving compared to her sister, who had to use in vitro fertilisation.
Welcoming their sons was especially special for the twins because they both suffered several miscarriages in the past. They also lost their elder sister earlier this year.
Janelle described the strong bond between her and her sister:
We feel when we’re apart, there’s a piece of us missing. Our kids already feel this bond as well.
