Southern California twin sisters gave birth on the same day, despite having different due dates. Larisha West and Sanisha Johnson gave birth within a mere five hours of each other.

This is the third time the twin sisters have been pregnant at the same time, but their two previous children were born much farther apart.

Larisha was scheduled for a C-section at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, and Sanisha had her labor induced the day before. They thought that their children might be born a day apart, but certainly not on the same day.

“I want them to be close. I want them to know what family means,” Larisha told KSWB. “That’s something that’s big on us, so how close we are is how close our kids are.”

Sanisha gave birth to Angel first. Then, five hours later, Larisha delivered Dontee. Dontee weighed 8 lbs., 6 oz., while Angel weighed the inverse, 6 lbs., 8 oz.

“We have a big family, and we always do everything alike and together, so our kids know our family is bonded together,” Sanisha said.

The two mothers are extremely close and referred to the two cousins as “twins” already. Their husbands even joked that the pair must have planned this all along. Sometimes, real life truly is stranger than fiction!
