A set of 26-year-old identical twin nurses assisted in the delivery room as identical twin girls entered the world.
Tara Drinkard, a labor and delivery nurse and her identical twin sister, Tori Howard, who works in the NICU at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center in Georgia, were present in the delivery room as a mother gave birth to identical twin girls.
The identical twin babies, who were born at the hospital where the nurses work, are Addison and Emma Williams. Addison was born at 12:42 p.m. and Emma arrived 3 minutes later on Sept. 25, 2019, ABC News reported.
Drinkard and Howard have been nurses for 5 years, but never had the opportunity to be in delivery together, let alone deliver identical twin girls. This hospital was also where they were born in 1993, according to 11Alive.
“I was excited to go to a delivery with my sister but it didn’t really cross my mind—we’re twins and they’re twins,” she said.
Brannan and Rebecca Williams, parents to newborns twins, said they were excited to learn that two of the nurses were twins just like their daughters.
“It was pretty neat because Tara took care of Becca in the labor and delivery room and Tori was taking care of Emma in the NICU,” Brannan told “GMA.”
The babies were born early at 32 weeks and 6 days. They’re still in the NICU and are scheduled to head home on Thursday, Oct.17.
