Mom Gives Birth to Twins in Two Different Towns (VIDEO)

Say What!? 14

A mom from Amityville, New York has quite a story to tell her kids when they grow up, because she just gave birth to her twin baby boys while driving on two different highways over the weekend! After Siobhan Anderson's water broke at 5:30 a.m. on Saturday, she and her husband Bryan waited until 7:00 a.m. to get in the car and go to the hospital because her doctor urged them not to rush.

But as it turns out, her baby boys were much more ready to make their entrance into the world than Siobhan thought, because her first son wound up being born at an exit on the Southern State Parkway in Long Island.

She felt the baby's head coming out after a contraction, and that's when she had her husband pull over. EMTs did arrive at the scene in time for the newborn's arrival, and she delivered him on a stretcher while being moved to the ambulance.

After that, she and the baby were put in the ambulance to be taken to the hospital so Siobhan could deliver baby number two -- but he had other plans as well. She gave birth to him on the side of the Wantagh State Parkway.

The ambulance did finally head on to the hospital after that, where they arrived with both babies in tow. Little Gavin and Declan Anderson are both doing fine, and will go home with their parents and big brother Dylan later this week.

This woman definitely has one pretty amazing story to tell, but she does admit that the toughest part of the whole ordeal was being forced to deliver the twins without an epidural -- not having to deliver them roadside. But I'm sure she probably forgot all about the pain while she was pushing two babies out while hearing the sounds of cars whizzing past her! You'd think that the noise and unexpectedness of the situation would be a bit of a distraction, to say the least.

I can't help but wonder what they are going to put on these two babies' birth certificates as far as birthplaces go? They may be twins, but being born in two different towns is something they'll surely joke about for years to come.

Take a look at this video clip to hear more about Siobhan's adventure while delivering her twins.
