Reacting, one of the brothers, Joe told the BBC:
"We were there to support each other. The hospital staff were a bit confused about it - we kept getting questions about who we were and why we were there together, because you weren't allowed any visitors. When we told them we were brothers and both of our partners were in labour they couldn't get their heads around it."
The story was later shared on Instagram by @bbcnews.
