PINEHURST, N.C. — Two North Carolina brothers celebrated the birth of their children at the exact same minute a few weeks ago, according to WBTV.

Matthew and Brooke Thayer were at the hospital Sunday, March 20, waiting to induce the birth of their little girl.

At the same time, Matthew’s brother, Steve, and his wife Fawn, were at an Easter egg hunt in a different county. When Fawn started feeling strange, they went to see a nurse and realized she was in labor.

Matthew first shared the exciting news by sending his parents a photo of their baby daughter, Cassidy. As he was sending photos, Steve chimed in, announcing the birth of his son, Benjamin.

Both babies were born at 6:53 p.m. at different hospitals.

Brooke and Fawn’s due dates were only three days apart so no one was surprised they gave birth on the same day. The timing, though, is what no one expected.

Matthew told WBTV that their nurse had never seen siblings have babies born at the same time before during her 40-year career.

Both sets of parents said Benjamin and Cassidy likely have combined birthday parties to look forward to in the future.
