Twins born holding hands are now 2years old and closer than ever

Twins born holding hands are now 2 years old and closer than ever

Two years ago the Internet let out a collective ’awwww’ at the now iconic photo of these twin sisters holding hands at the moment of their miraculous birth.

Jenna and Jillian Thistlethwaite are monoamniotic twins — a condition so rare that it only affects 1 in 10,000 pregnancies — and shared the same amniotic sac until their birth by caesarean section on May 9, 2014. Complications can easily arise with two babies and two umbilical cords sharing the same space, and so their mother Sarah Thistlethwaite spent 57 days prior to the girls’ birth on bed rest, keeping herself busy by knitting clothes for the keenly anticipated new babies.

Every birth is miraculous, and multiple pregnancies are extra special. But what the doctors and nurses witnessed in the delivery room melted everyone’s hearts. The girls, who were born just 45 seconds apart, clasped hands and held on to each other as everyone in the room looked on in awe.
