"Our due dates were the same date,” Christine O'Meara told the Delco Times. “When we finally had our ultrasounds, they changed it. We kept laughing."

Michael Edward O’Meara was born at 8:07 a.m. Dec. 14. A day earlier Christine’s sister Elizabeth Ferro had gone to the doctor and ended up staying overnight. She gave birth, her first, to Elizabeth Jane Ferro at 10:36 p.m. Dec. 14.

"It's fun now getting all the babies and grandkids together," O'Meara, who has two other children, told the Times. "They're going to grow up together ... I just want them to be best friends."
