These Twins Do Everything Together—Including Giving Birth!

So it makes sense that twins would also share major life events, like giving birth. At least, that was the case with Karen Escobar and her identical twin, Kathy. When Karen felt the first stirrings of labor on June 17, the she headed straight to The Woman's Hospital of Texas with her sister in tow.

Though Kathy was also pregnant, she was more than ready to support her sister in the delivery room. It was a safe bet: The twins were seeing the same ob-gyn, who never dreamed they'd have their babies on the same day, the hospital's CEO, Ashley McClellan, told

But in true twin style, Kathy also went into labor, and the sisters ended up delivering their babies within two-and-a-half hours of each other. Kathy gave birth first, to daughter Aimet Angela, at 5:33 a.m. Karen followed by delivering son Liam Antonio at 7:42 a.m.

Thankfully, both births went off without a hitch, and the moms and babies are all doing well. Congratulations, Kathy and Karen!

  1. Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
