Sisters Birth Daughters a Minute & a Room Apart

twin feet babiesIs it possible to have a twin cousin? Well, this recent baby news story from Dorset, England is about as close as it can get. Two sisters -- Kerry Johnston, 26, and Lee-ann Annan, 24 -- delivered their baby girls within one minute of each other, in next door rooms at the same hospital.

How cool is that? Twin cousins!

The two sisters' due dates were nine days apart, but they went into labor within 15 minutes of one another. Then they labored for pretty much the same amount of time. Isn't that crazy coincidental?

Lee-ann's baby girl Bella was born at 11:53 a.m., and a minute later, Kerry gave birth to her daughter Jessica at 11:54 a.m.

Congratulations to the ladies, their twin cousin daughters, and their families!
