EL PASO, Texas (KFOX14) — Babies are always special additions to any family. This New Year’s Eve, two El Paso twin sisters are ringing it in with their new babies.
Both were born at the same hospital just hours a part.
It's not uncommon for Las Palmas Medical Center to deliver twin babies.
Two cousins born at the hospital have different moms, but by fate—the same birthday.
Celeste and Cynthia gave birth a day before New Year’s Eve, just hours apart.
"I was 12:55 a.m.,” said Cynthia. “And then I was 11:43 a.m.,” said Celeste.
By the way, Celeste and Cynthia are twin sisters. They now have two daughters who are twin cousins. This was something totally unexpected.
"Even our husbands they say, ‘Oh, did you guys just talk and say, hey let's have these baby's together?’” said Celeste. “I was like, there's no way you can get it exactly."
During a family cookout where Celeste and her husband announced their pregnancy, Celeste said her sister Cynthia disappeared.
"She was in the bathroom and I was like what's wrong?,” said Celeste. “She's like, ‘Come in here.’ And I went in there and she took a pregnancy test and was also pregnant."
As twin sisters, coincidences have followed them, but they never could have guessed having almost identical pregnancies.
"Even when we did the ultrasounds and stuff like that, they were faced the same,” said Celeste. “We both had to go back. They were being stubborn. Everything was the same."
The sisters’ due dates were supposed to be three days apart. But they said it's like their babies shared some sort of connection.
"When I came to visit her on Sunday when they were admitting her [Cynthia], I had been getting contractions,” said Celeste. “So, she told me to go get checked. And I ended up getting admitted."
Some might call it a new year's miracle.
"We share birthdays and now they share birthdays,” said Celeste.
