Twin sisters who had done things together in time past have also just done something tremendous together.
The twin sisters, Jalynne Crawford and Janelle Leopoldo gave birth to boys on the same day in June at the same Arizona hospital. They each had C-sections by the same doctor, about two hours apart.
According to ABCnews, Crawford’s newborn son is her fourth child and Leopoldo’s new baby boy is her second child.
It was a easy one for Crawford, who got pregnant “easily”, however, Leopoldo utilized vitro fertilization and got to discover that she was pregnant just four days after Crawford.
Prior to that time, the twins lost their eldest sister due to an asthma attack and also had three miscarriages between them, one for Leopoldo and two for Crawford.
“Everyone always asks how we decided who got to go first,” Crawford told “Good Morning America.” “Since my husband [professional baseball player Brandon Crawford of the San Francisco Giants] only had a few days of paternity leave, Janelle offered me to go first so we would have a few extra hours with him. Also, I’m two minutes older and I found out I was pregnant four days earlier, so it made sense.”
“When we approached the doctor about having the babies on the same day, he said it was fine, they were the same gestational age and due within a week of one another,” Crawford told “GMA.”
Once the boys were born — Bryson Ryder Crawford and Jace Alan Leopoldo — the women were given rooms next door to one another. “For the three days we were in the hospital we were in each other’s rooms all the time,” said Crawford.
Crawford said she envisions that the boys will grow up to be very close. The sisters’ other children already are. The new baby boys already have a nickname: The family calls them the “twinousins.”
