Identical Twins Deliver Daughters 6 Minutes Apart In Same Hospital

Update Date: Feb 12, 2016 02:54 PM EST

All their lives they have lived Identical lives. And this time, Stephanie Edginton and Nicole Montgomery had babies at the same hospital, on the very same day.

However, the babies were born slightly apart----a matter of six minutes, according to Action News.

In New Jersey, they got admitted to the Virtua Hospital in Voorhees on Monday, Feb. 8. While Edginton was to have had a baby last Feb. 5, she saw her doctor when her delivery got delayed.

"We actually had a doctor's appointment today," Edginton said. "So we got there and they were like, 'You have to go to the hospital.' We get a call that Nicole and Rich are on their way, too."

On the other hand, Montgomery's delivery was scheduled on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, according to Daily News. But she got thrilled to hear that her twin was coming to the hospital, and her delivery actually got preponed to coincide with her sister's.

Both were admitted to the hospital's labor wing and could check on each other periodically. "I feel very blessed to be going through this with my best friend," said Montgomery.

And a few hours later, history repeated itself when Cora, Edginton's daughter, and Lousia, Montgomery's daughter, were born just six minutes apart to twins who had been delivered three minutes apart years ago.

The daughters will surely share a special bond like their mothers, who studied in the same college, had the same careers and were part of the same sorority.
