The Same Time!

I said for months, ‘These ba­bies are com­ing out the same day!’”

Both marvel at the co­in­ci­dence. “You couldn’t plan some­thing like this,” says Leah, an ed­u­ca­tion strate­gist for Dell. She’d been at­tempt­ing to get preg­nant “for quite a while” with hus­band Kyle, 36, who works in fi­nance. Al­though the twins are in­cred­i­bly close — they talk and text with each other and their two other sis­ters nearly ev­ery day — they never co­or­di­nated con­cep­tion sched­ules. Leah says Sarah’s hus­band, Nick, 39, CEO for a so­cial me­dia an­a­lyt­ics com­pany, was shocked. “He was like, ‘ What?! I didn’t even know you guys were try­ing!’”

They also en­joyed in­cred­i­bly sim­i­lar, healthy preg­nan­cies. The Michi­gan State grad­u­ates both craved the same foods (“Sweets!” says Leah) and even had a joint baby shower. “We texted each other pictures of pas­tries, cup­cakes and dough­nuts,” says Sarah. “It was fun to have some­one to com­mis­er­ate with on the rough days or cel­e­brate with on the days you felt great.”

Now the twins are look­ing for­ward to introducing their ba­bies to each other in the com­ing months. “It’s funny, the two of us have shared ev­ery­thing, in­clud­ing our birth­days, so it’s kind of ironic that these two as cousins will get to ex­pe­ri­ence a bit of what we’ve ex­pe­ri­enced as sis­ters. We’re su­per blessed,” says Leah. Adds Sarah: “It’s a joy­ful thing, and whether it’s serendip­i­tous, God, fate, what­ever you want to be­lieve in, it’s def­i­nitely a happy story!”

This tiny toy poo­dle is a nat­u­ral in the pool, just like the Olympic swim­mer and com­peti­tor. “Cody likes to play in the wa­ter when he vis­its the Hamp­tons,” says owner Xiomi Frans- Cu­ber. We’re guess­ing his dog­gie pad­dle is also much bet­ter than his fox-trot!
