What are the odds that an auntie and nephew would be born 34 minutes apart on the same day in the same hospital? Pretty low, is the answer. But that's exactly what happened this month in Florida, as Bay News 9 reports.
"I've been doing this for 29 years, over 14,000 deliveries, and I've never had a mom and daughter deliver the same day," said Dr. Zakhary of Tampa General Hospital, where the related bundles of joy were delivered.
Angela Patram, 37, knew she and her daughter Teranisha Billups, 20, were due to give birth in the same month. But then Billups went into labor two weeks early.
"I wanted her to deliver with me being in here, and me to deliver with her being there, and it just didn't work out," Billups told Bay News 9. She and her mother plan on raising their newest additions as best friends.
"We were texting back and forth sending pictures back and forth and that was the only way to communicate," Patram said of the simultaneous deliveries.
Adding more irony to the spectacular events, Patram said she got home from the hospital and saw the movie "Father of the Bride 2" on television, a Steve Martin and Diane Keaton film that portrays a mother and daughter giving birth at the same time.
