A family was shocked when two sisters fell pregnant with identical twins at exactly the same time.
Megan O’Brien, 29, gave birth to Lilah and Josie on November 21 2021 and sister Sara Seyler, 32, had Lennon and Parker just three months later in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, in the US.
On top of the ‘complete coincidence’ of being pregnant at the same time, both siblings ended up having twins.
But the sisters loved going through pregnancy together, as they were able to bounce things off each other and ‘always have someone to relate to’.
Megan, whose husband is a triplet, discovered she was having twins first and her ‘jaw dropped’ when she found out Sara was pregnant with the same.
The younger sister said: ‘I answered the FaceTime and Sara was crying and I thought “oh my god, what’s wrong”?
‘Then, she held up the ultrasound picture and there were two babies. I got tears in my eyes, it was so cool that she was having twins too.’
Sara, who has gone from one child to three, said: ‘There’s a lot of days where it is very difficult. I’m a stay-at-home mom right now.
‘So having all three of them some days is a lot. But lots of fun. More positives than negatives, that’s for sure.’
