Aimee and Ashlee Nelson are REALLY alike. Even when having babies.

AIDEN AND DONAVYN didn’t wait until New Year’s Day to come screaming into the world, but the circumstances of their births are still pretty special: The babies were born about two hours apart to Ohio mothers who are identical twins.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports that the 19-year-old mothers — Aimee and Ashlee Nelson — weren’t raised to do things alike and did not plan the births to come at the same time. In fact, their due dates were about a week apart.

Aimee’s son, Donavyn Scott Bratten, was born just after noon on the last day of 2012. Ashlee’s son, Aiden Lee Alan Dilts, made his appearance at about 2 pm.

They were delivered by the same doctor at Summa Akron City Hospital.
