Two minds must think alike when you are an identical twin.
Mariuz gave birth to a baby girl in La Jolla, California while her sister Leah Rodgers gave birth to a baby boy in Denver, Colorado.
“We’ve always lived in separate places, but all of us—we have two —sisters are very close in age and very close,” Rodgers said. “But certainly there’s another connection at the twin level.”
The sisters were surprised to learn that they both got pregnant around the same time and decided to text each other pregnancy updates during their pregnancies.
“We didn’t plan on being pregnant at the same time. But our journeys aligned, even giving birth! Twins have a special bond, it’s hard to explain,” Mariuz told People.
Rodgers knew her sister was pregnant when she was approached her sister with her pregnancy announcement last year and shared her news shortly before her sister did.
Samantha Lynne and Reid Joseph, their newborn babies, will now share the same birthdays, just as their identical moms do, and will possibly develop a close connection to each other as well.
