The Miracle of Twins: A Heartwarming Journey of Two Sisters and Their Extraordinary Birth

Two sisters who gave birth on the same day have celebrated their daughters’ first birthdays by recreating their stunning maternity photoshoot — this time with their little girls.

Last year, a pregnant Corey Struve Talbott, 32, went to the Monterey, California, hospital where her sister, Katie Struve Morgan, 30, was about to give birth to document the moment and welcome her new niece.

Little did she know that destiny had another plan: Corey began going into labor herself as her sister was on the delivery table, and they ended up giving birth to their baby girls just 20 minutes apart.

Now, a year later, the sisters are celebrating their daughters Ryatt and Indie’s first birthdays with a photoshoot as adorable as their story. 

The sisters found out they were both expecting around the holidays in 2015, and they proudly showed off their baby bumps in matching teal dresses and flower crowns for their joint maternity shoot.

However, they never thought they would actually be giving birth on the same day.

Corey was planning on having a C-section delivery and was waiting for the scheduled date when Katie went on to labor. However, she soon found herself in labor as well.

‘Corey was on her way to [take] photos for me and I hadn’t seen her and I’m like, “Where is she?” And she comes in fully gowned with her IV and she’s like, “I’m sorry, I have to have Ryatt! She’s coming!”’  Katie told ABC News.

The sisters’ doctor and nurses had to keep running between their two rooms. Two minutes into Corey’s C-section, the doctor had to run back to Katie to catch her baby.

‘This is crazy! It’s like having twins with two separate people,’ said one nurse as she ran between delivery rooms.

Cousins Ryatt Raegan Talbott and Indie Mae Morgan were born just 20 minutes apart on August 10th, 2016.

In honor of their little girls’ birthdays, Corey and Katie put their teal dresses and flower crowns back on to recreate last year’s shoot with their little ones.

The new photos see Ryatt and Indie donning matching polka dot dresses and flower crowns just like their mothers.

Another picture sees the sisters holding hands while their daughters are balanced on their opposite hips.

The sisters, who live five minutes from each other in Salinas, California, are raising their daughters as sisters.

While Corey is the more outgoing sister, her daughter Ryatt takes after Katie and is soft-spoken. Katie’s daughter Indie, on the other hand, is outspoken like her aunt Corey.

Corey and her husband Travis also have a two-year-old son, Tydus, and Katie and her husband Tim share two other girls, Olivia, seven, and Willow, four
