AKRON, Ohio, (UPI) —  A set of twin sisters in Ohio said they gave birth about 2 hours apart at the same hospital.

Aimee and Ashlee Nelson, both 19, both gave birth to sons Monday at Summa Akron City Hospital, with Aimee and father Matthew Bratten, 20, having the first child, Donavyn Scott Bratten, at 12:11 p.m., The Akron (Ohio) Beacon Journal reported Wednesday.

Ashlee and Cody Dilts, 22, followed at 2:03 p.m. with son Aiden Lee Alan Dilts.

Dr. Laura Schnegg delivered both infants.

Marcella Farson, the twins’ mother, said the women had due dates one week apart and had not planned to deliver the same day.

Farson said she had her own responsibilities with two pregnant daughters.

“Within the past two months, me being the mother, I would get a whiny phone call in the middle of the night on what’s going on and I would hang the phone up and literally 5 minutes later I would have the other one crying,” she said.
