Twins Give Birth Hours Apart After One Sister Goes into Labor While Visiting Sibling in Hospital

Identical twins from Pennsylvania welcomed their first babies on the same day just hours apart!

Rebecca Lawrence and Christina Keefer live with their spouses about 15 minutes away from one another near WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital, according to Good Morning America.


However, giving birth on the same day wasn’t initially part of the plan.

“Rebecca had a scheduled induction at the hospital on Tuesday,” the hospital wrote on social media. “Christina went to visit her sister in the hospital and while she was there, she went into labor too!”

On May 25, Lawrence gave birth to her daughter Raylynn at 12:07 a.m., according to GMA. That afternoon, Keefer welcomed son Xavian at 1:17 p.m.

The sisters were even able to attend each other’s deliveries thanks to the well-timed turn of events, and shared recovery rooms next door to one another.

The babies also shared close-to-identical birth stats. Raylynn weighed 8 lbs., 3 oz., while Xavian checked in at 8 lbs. 12 oz, the hospital said in a Facebook post.

“Their newborns will share a special bond,” the hospital added.

The sisters were each discharged from the hospital with their healthy newborns within a day of one another, just in time to celebrate their own birthdays on May 29.
