Sisters give birth on same day, at same hospital

By The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — Two inseparable sisters found themselves upping their togetherness game by giving birth on the same day — at the same hospital.

Sisters Charell and Cierra Anthony gave birth Wednesday at Indianapolis' Community Hospital East. Charell Anthony's son, Terry Valentino, was born at 12:40 a.m., and Cierra Anthony's daughter, Dream Monique, came into the world at 6:29 p.m., the Indianapolis Star reported.

The babies were due weeks apart, but they evidently had other plans. And the mothers say they will do everything they can to keep the cousins close — starting with joint birthday parties.

“Hopefully, they'll grow up to act like twins,” Charell Anthony said.
