Twins give birth 2 hours apart

Twins give birth

A pair of identical twin sisters in Ohio now share another special bond, becoming mothers in the New Year just two hours apart.

Aimee Nelson found out she was pregnant just two days after her sister, Ashlee, did.

With due dates just five days apart, the sisters knew they would have a great story to share with the cousins when they grew up. But they had no idea Aimee would go into labor early.

"My mom told me that she was here and when I got up to go to the bathroom, my water broke, so I had to come in too," Ashlee told Cleveland TV station WEWS.

Aimee's son, Donovyn, was born at 12:11 p.m. on New Year's Eve. Cousin Cody entered the world at 2:03 p.m.

Although they're very close, the twin sisters couldn't have planned this even if they tried.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
