DENVER — They say twins get each other, but this takes that statement a little bit further.
Twin sisters Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers each gave birth to their first child last week — and they both delivered their child at the exact same time in each sister’s respective time zone.
Rodgers gave birth first, welcoming a son at 1:18 a.m. in Denver, while Mariuz’s daughter was born at 1:18 a.m. in La Jolla, Calif.
“We’ve always lived in separate places, but all of us — we have two sisters — are very close in age and very close,” Rodgers told TODAY. “But certainly, there’s another connection at the twin level.”
The 35-year-old identical twin sisters hadn’t planned to be pregnant at the same time but ended up with due dates just days apart.
The twins and their newborns are doing well.
