But even though they grew up doing everything together, including dressing alike, the twins told KFSN they did not plan on having babies at the same time.
“I found out I was pregnant first and then I told her. She told me she might be pregnant too,” Bao Kou Julie Yang told KFSN.
The sisters’ due dates were actually two days apart, but both women went into labor around the same time at the Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno, California.
They welcomed their daughters Kendra Thao and Natalie Xiong about two hours apart. Bao Kou gave birth to baby Natalie first at 6:59 p.m., while Bao Nhia welcomed baby Kendra at 8:48 p.m., KFSN reported.
Bao Nhia, who already has children, shared her advice for her sister, who is a first-time mom.
“She’s going to need a lot of rest because the baby will be crying,” Bao Nhia told KFSN.
The hospital also offered the twins the opportunity to share a room after giving birth, according to KFSN.
