Twins Born 87 Days Apart May Set Guinness World Record
A set of twin girls may have made history because they were born a staggering 87 days apart. The episode may be a Guinness World Record for the longest interval between the birth of twins. Mother Maria Jones–Elliott calls her girls "little miracles" because their remarkable birth began with her water breaking when she was not yet 24 weeks pregnant. The first twin, Amy, was born after a 2-day labor weighing only 1 lb 3 oz. The Daily Mail chronicles what happened next:
When she was 36 weeks pregnant, Jones–Elliott was induced and delivered her second twin, Katie, who weighed 5 lb 10 oz, after just an hour of labor.
