It was already dreamlike when twin sisters Kim Abraham and Danielle Grant discovered they were both pregnant – on the same day.

They thought there was probably no way they would end up having the babies on the same day too.

Both sisters gave birth to baby boys just hours apart on April 28 at Ocean Medical Center in Brick, N.J.  Danielle and her husband Tyler welcomed 8-pound, 12-ounce Roman at 11:42 a.m., and then Kim and her husband Matt welcoming 9-pound, 12-ounce Aaron at 3:21 p.m.

“We were like, ‘What are the chances of us actually having them on the same day?'” Abraham said to TODAY. “It’s such a great way to bring a baby into this world. The well wishes and happiness from strangers is just unbelievable.”

Grant agreed “It’s very overwhelming and surreal to bring a child into the world to begin with, and then to have one at the same time with my sister, it’s awesome.” The 32-year-old sisters live only 6 miles apart and their husbands are also really good friends.

It all started when Abraham, who is only a minute older than Grant, found out she was pregnant with her first child and urged Grant to take a test herself on the same day.

“It took me a while to get pregnant with my [2-year-old] daughter, so I just assumed it would take me a while this time,” Grant said. “I took the test, and it said positive, and I was like ‘Oh my God!'”

The twins had a reveal in which they handed envelopes containing the babies’ gender to a friend, who loaded up a pair of confetti cannons to release either blue or pink. “It was really cool to see all that blue come down,” Abraham said.

They had a friendly bet going to see which sister would give birth first. Both of them initially had the same due date (April 22) and then both were induced after that day passed.

“They all make fun of me because I’m late to everything, so of course they said I was going to be late this time,” Grant said. “But then everyone was telling me the second baby always goes faster, so I was like, ‘You better be right!”’

The boys don’t look that much alike right now, but that’s about the only difference they share, says Grant.

“Even when we’re shopping without each other and we see something cute, we have to buy it in twos,” Grant said. “We’re always together, so they will always be together.”
