LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — It's a birthday celebration these mothers will not forget.
Two cousins had a girl and a boy that were born an hour apart.
Shelby Reichart and Ashley Cheever gave birth last Tuesday morning. Reichart had a cesarean section scheduled that day but didn't expect to hear her cousin was admitted a few hours prior to her arrival.
"As soon as we got checked in they were like well we gotta take you to your cousin your cousin!" Cheever said.
Months ago, Reichart joked about going into labor on the same day.
"We are going to have our babies on the same day, I just had a feeling." Reichart said.
Parker Cheever and Tatum Cole Reichart were born at IU Health Arnett Hospital. Cheever said it was easy for their families to pop in and out.
This is Reichart's first baby. She's said it's been easier than she expected.
"She's a really good baby, I don't want to jinx us but so far so good," Reichart said.
