COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) โ€” Two sisters. Two new babies around the same time โ€” again.

Piedmont Columbus Regional said in a statement that sisters Mara Meighan and Jennifer Solis went into labor on the same day last week and gave birth nearly at the same time at the hospitalโ€™s midtown campus in west Georgia. The hospital also says the sisters had their first children around the same time nine years ago.

Meighan gave birth to a girl named Ana Grace, while Solis had a boy named Marco. Ana Grace weighed in at 8 pounds, 3 ounces, and Marco was 7 pounds, 15 ounces.

The hospital says both babies are healthy.

Hospital officials didnโ€™t immediately return a call seeking comment on whether the sisters or doctors did anything to influence when the babies arrived.
