Unbelievable Twins

Amy and Katie just might be the most unbelievable twins ever. Although they are very healthy now, there were complications during the pregnancy which caused the sisters to be born 87 days apart![image_border img=”http://www.ripleys.com/weird/files/2013/05/babytwin.jpg” caption=”” pos=”right” border=”true” buffer=”true” /]

“I always felt I was going to have twins and even as soon as I found out I was pregnant Chris said: ‘Oh that’ll be twins then’ as they run in the family,” -Mother, Maria Jones–Elliott

The parents, Chris and Maria Jones-Elliot, were already proud parents of two when they found out two more members were to be added to their family.

23 weeks into the pregnancy is when complications started to arise.  Maria gave birth to Amy, and at 1lbs 3oz, she was put into intensive care.

The doctors tried to deliver the second child, but Katie wasn’t ready to meet the world yet! 87 days later, Katie was ready to join her parents and twin sister.  She arrived into the world weighing 5lbs 10oz.

“Our friends and family helped us – Chris’s colleagues even worked hours for him. I don’t know how we’d have got through it without them,” Maria

These resilient twin sisters are truly unbelievable!
