Brothers become fathers on same day

LONG ISLAND, N.Y.  -- Two brothers from New York became fathers on the same day at the same time.

Their wives gave birth within an hour of each other at the same hospital just down the hall from one another.

One baby came a day early and her cousin nine days early.

The same doctor also delivered babies to two sisters just a week earlier.

"Beth and I came here this morning not knowing they were here. So I sent my brother a text message saying we were in the hospital and he tells me they were already here for a couple of hours," said one of the brothers.

Now the two couples joke about the one conversation they had when they realized they were pregnant at the same time.
