Sisters Who Gave Birth Minutes Apart Share Their Before & After Shots

Jenn is perhaps best known as the author of the popular parenting blog Breed ‘Em and Weep (2005-2012). She’s written for many magazines, newspapers and websites, including Brain, Child Magazine, Literary Mama, and The Boston Globe. Jenn’...

These two are #SisterGoals all the way

We just shared distressed jeans and bottles of hairspray with our sisters. How's this for an amazingly close sisterly bond: Corey Struve Talbott and Katie Struve Morgan were amazed to find that they were pregnant at the same time... and they leveled up by delivering their babies just 20 minutes apart.

It gets better. The sisters even shared a doctor, who bolted from Talbott's room to deliver her sister's baby.

"My sister and I are a year and ten months apart, so we're really, really close in age. We actually coined the term 'sticky sisters' 'cause we always stick together," Talbott said in an interview with Parents.

"Three days before Christmas [2015] I was really late and she said 'let's get a pregnancy test,'" Talbott continued. "And it was positive. All of sudden she's like 'you're going to die but I'm pregnant too. I was surprising you guys on Christmas Day.'" (Best surprise ever for sure, we're thinking.)

Obviously these extra-special pregnancies required an extra-special maternity photo shoot — a shared one for the sisters. The shoot — by photographer Brenden Boggs of So Cute Photo — garnered huge attention online (not surprisingly).

One year later, the sisters decided to recreate the maternity shoot in celebration of the first birthday of their daughters (yes, of course they both had daughters, daughters who rhyme: Indie Mae and Ryatt Rae, we can't even).

"The babies just turned one on August 10, and Brenden has just been our photographer from the beginning," Talbott said. "We were like 'well, she's got to do our [first birthday] photos, and so I reached out to her and... she's like 'why don't we re-make your maternity photos with the babies?' And we were like 'oh my gosh, that's such a great idea, let's do it.'"

See for yourself why the internet is swooning over these sisters and their little girls:

The two families live only five minutes away from each other, and the little first cousins are practically being raised as sisters.

"Everything we do is together. Even just everyday stuff. It's been really nice to have the support. You can call your sister for anything, but it's so much better having babies that are basically twins together," Talbott said. "We say it's magical all the time... We just can't believe we get to do this together."

We can't believe we get to watch and have massive #SisterGoal envy. Probably a little too late to plan out a scheme for simultaneous birthing with our own sisters, but we'll happily enjoy watching this girl posse do everything together for years to come.
