Identical Twin Sisters Give Birth On Same Day At Same Time

Twin sisters Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers not only share the same birthday, but their kids do, too.

Mariuz and Rodgers, both 35, each gave birth last Thursday at the same time: 1:18 a.m.

According to, Rodgers’ baby boy, Reid Joseph, was born in Denver, Colorado, while Mariuz’ girl, Samantha Lynne, was born in La Jolla, California, which is one time zone behind, so the cousins were born an hour apart though both clocks read 1:18.

The sisters insist they didn’t plan to get pregnant at the same time. Instead, they surprised each other at Thanksgiving.

“I wanted it to be a surprise, but when she showed up at the door -– it was the funniest thing –- I opened the door, welcomed her into the home, but as soon as I saw her, I knew she was pregnant too,” Rodgers tells “I can’t explain it, I just knew. My prediction was that she was five days behind me, and it turned out her due date was four days after me.”

So far, neither sister has been been able to see her niece or nephew, but they aretrying to work out a time to visit each other, according to the Associated Press.

“We’ll definitely spend Christmas together,” Mariuz told

Rodgers predicts the bond between cousins should be as strong as the one she shares with her sister.

“It’s a really cool thing to be able to share,” Rodgers told “The adventure will only continue as our babies share the same birthday like we did! We can’t wait for them to grow up together.”
