It’s a true blessing to give birth to your first child – it’s double the happiness when you’re identical twin sisters who’re giving birth on the same day! Today’s story is about identical twins from California – Jill Justiniani & Erin Cheplak, both 30 years old. They had their first babies on May 5th, 2022 – both of the beautiful boys were born a few hours apart and weighed the exact same!
A Twin Miracle
Babies, Oliver & Silas, were both born weighing 7.3lbs. The sisters were elated about having their first children together. The beautiful baby boys were welcomed in Kaiser Permanente Hospital, Anaheim. Oliver & Silas also have the same height at birth – both being 50.8cms tall.
The twin sisters spoke to PEOPLE Magazine about how amazing this journey had been for them. Jill said:
“It just feels like it was supposed to be,”
“It is a little surprising because what are the odds? But it’s like, of course this would happen to us.”
Jill was expected to have her baby on May 5th while Erin was expected to have her baby on May 15th. But, as fate would have it, her water broke on the morning on May 5th. Erin told PEOPLE:
“I called my husband, Zach, and I said, ‘Okay, this isn’t a joke. My water just broke. I’m going to need you to come home from work and take me to labour and delivery’”
“My next phone call was to Jill and I said, ‘Okay, this isn’t a joke, but I’m pretty sure my water just broke.’ Jill’s like, ‘All right. Well, I’ll see you there.’ “
This adorable and happy family is going to have an amazing time together, as mentioned by Jill.
“That’s just another really special thing for our sons — they’re going to have a sense of closeness that they can also rely on each other the way that my sister and I did,”
While speaking about her relationship with her twin sister, Jill told PEOPLE:
“We played together, slept together, ate together,”
“My parents would talk about how we had our own language together. We’d be in our cribs side to side and make these cooing sounds. I’d make a sound and Erin would respond.”
“We’re each other’s best friends and to know that our sons are going to grow up with the opportunity for a similar experience is a huge blessing,”
It fills our hearts with pure joy when we see such happy and loving families being together for each other. We wish this amazing family a very happy life ahead!
