They delivered their babies at 1:18 am June 30 in different time zones.
Leah, who is older, was also married first and has been for the last nine years. Her sister, Sarah tied the knot four years ago. As fate would have it, their first born will also share the same birthday. Leah was also supposed to deliver her baby four days before Sarah. A report in Today.com said Sarah and Leah delivered their first born babies at 1:18 am, June 30 in Denver and Califf respectively.

In a related development, a set of 26-year-old identical twin sisters in Kenya grew up doing everything and ended up marrying twin brothers. In Western Kenya, a woman was blessed with six set of twins, though she says she struggles raising them after her husband left fearing she had been cursed.
Traditional practice in Kenya saw the elimination of twins or one of the twins, it was considered a bad omen or a curse to give birth to twins especially as first born. Some rural areas practiced this until it was eventually abolished.
