Wow! Brothers Welcome New Babies on SAME DAY at SAME TIME
Two brothers became fathers on the same day! The brothers, who live 80 miles apart, have quite the story to tell.
Brooke Thayer and her sister-in-law Fawn Thaye gave birth at the same time Sunday evening. Their husbands, Matt and Steve are the brothers. How cool is that? The babies were born at the SAME time on the SAME day!
Cassidy, daughter of Matt and Brooke, arrived Sunday at 6:53 p.m. Benjamin Thayer, son of Steve and Fawn, was also born Sunday at 6:53 p.m. Brooke said they all joked together about the babies arriving on the same day, but they never thought it would become a reality.
"When we were talking about it the nurses were like, 'Oh my gosh!'" said Matt Thayer. "One nurse, who had been working for 40 years, said she had never heard of it."
Benjamin and Cassidy have not yet met, but the families say they plan to get together on Easter for what the family says is sure to be a close relationship.
