Two sisters from Phenix City, Ala., gave birth on the same day, at the same hospital, around the same time last week for the second time in nearly a decade.
Mara Meighan and Jennifer Solis, who announced they were pregnant within a week of one another, knew there was a chance their children would be born around the same time. But they never expected the babies to arrive so close to one another.
Meighan gave birth to a healthy baby girl named Ana Grace, while her sister, Solis, birthed a healthy baby boy named Marco.
“It has brought us way closer than we were before,” Meighan told the news station.
This isn’t the first time the sisters have given birth on the same day. According to Piedmont Columbus Regional Hospital in Columbus, Ga., which cared for the sisters, the pair’s first children were born on the same day roughly nine years ago.
The hospital the newborns are “happy, healthy and doing well.”
