Photos: Identical Twin Sisters Give Birth At The Same Time On Same Day

The identical twins, who are 35, each gave birth to their first child early Thursday. The babies were born at the same exact time in each sister’s respective time zone — Rodgers gave birth first, welcoming a baby boy at 1:18 a.m., in Denver, Colorado, and Mariuz’s daughter was born at 1:18 a.m., in La Jolla, California.

The sisters and new moms said today that they’re thrilled by the coincidence, if not all that surprised.


“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 learned they were pregnant last year around the same time and planned to tell each other on Thanksgiving, which they were celebrating together. But as soon as Rodgers saw her sister, she already knew.

Mariuz didn’t break the news right away, though; she let her sister, older by 11 minutes, go first.

“We were at our older sister’s wedding recently, and, well, two pregnant chicks together, people couldn’t stop talking about this,” Rodgers said. “They kept asking us, ‘Was it planned?’ No! It was kind of entertaining.”

The moms and babies are home from the hospital and doing well, and the families are trying to work out a time to visit each other.

“We’ll definitely spend Christmas together,” Mariuz said.
