Identical Twins Give Birth Same Day

Twins Zaakira mitchell and Shaakira white have shared just about everything with one another.

So you might say it made cosmic sense that they both got pregnant just a few weeks apart.

"Everybody always asks, 'Did you all plan this? Did you all plan this?' No, it was not planned!"

With due dates about a month apart, the sisters experienced pregnancy together. They even had the same doctor.

"I've never seen just twins being pregnant at the same time!"

Dr. James Ferguson is still getting over the fact the sisters even shared their pregnancies. He says when they both showed up yesterday and went into labor, he couldn't believe it.

"I kind of joked with Shaakira that she was trying to steal her sister's limelight for that day. I just thought, 'This is not really believable.'"

"I called my mom and told her and she was just like, 'Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! I knew it! I knew it!'"

Shaakira was supposed to deliver at 5:30. But Dr. Ferguson was wrapped up with another patient, who was taking a little longer.

"I was ready to get it over with because I was already nervous, and she was just taking forever!"

"It wasn't my fault!"

"It was your fault."

Eventually, her older sister brought Kadin Mitchell into the world.

An hour after that, Shaakira had London Boyd -- and, wait for it -- her twin brother Landon.

"They're going to have fun growing up, just like we did."

With the three new additions, the sisters keep adding to their list of shared experiences.

now, these cousins will start a list of their own.

"I just can't wait to see what it's going to be like -- them growing up together and sharing this experience. Mmm hmm."
