Identical Twins Deliver Babies on Same Day at Same Hospital

Identical twins Jessica and Jennifer Patterson, 21, delivered their babies on the same day at the Indiana University Health Bloomington Hospital, the Herald-Times reports.

Jessica went to the hospital first but it was Jennifer who went into labor. Jennifer gave birth first to a girl and eight-and-half hours later, Jessica gave birth to a boy. The babies were named Adalynn Rose Patterson and Mason Douglas Patterson.

Jessica and Jennifer, both single parents, have been sharing an apartment for the last three years. Despite the addition of two babies, they said that they intend to continue living with each other.

Jessica said that it’s going to be a crazy house and they are hoping that both babies will grow up really close to each other.

The hospital spokeswoman Amanda Roach cannot recall the last time that identical twins gave birth on the same day at the hospital.


Do you know of any twins who gave birth on the same day at the same hospital? Or say, on the same day, at the same time and at the same hospital?
