Identical twin sisters married to identical twin brothers now plan to have synchronized pregnancies and raise their families together.
Josh and Jeremy Salyers, 35, met Brittany and Briana Deane, 33, at the festival of twins in Ohio in August 2017 and fell in love. They soon married in what they call a “double fairytale” and now hope to have children together, reported the New York Post.
The couples said they want to have twins, they want them to be born on the same day, and they want them to be raised together. “I know that’s four babies,” Briana’s husband Jeremy said, according to the New York Post.
The couples were told by a wedding preparation program that children born to them will be closer in looks than typical cousins.
“Because genetically, if you think about it, it’s like mind-blowing. Our children will be genetic siblings, ”Brittany said.
She was excited that their children will be siblings since they will inherit the same DNA that they share as twins.
The twin sisters went to school together and now work at the same law firm as attorneys. Since they have shared everything in life with each other and have always been together, they also wanted to be pregnant at the same time.
“If she [Brittany] was pregnant I would prefer being pregnant too. Being pregnant at different times would be difficult especially with the physical changes that happen,” Briana said.

“So if I was pregnant and Brittany wasn’t, I imagine I would look very different… That would be so hard. We’d be different weights, we would look different, our bodies would be experiencing different things,” she said.
The couple’s parents are supportive of their romances and marriage and marveled at how life will be for the couples when they have children.
Brittany and Briana’s mom, Debra Deane, wondered how life will be for the couples if they have only one child. “How will discipline work? Recognizing mom versus aunt and dad versus uncle. It’ll be interesting that phase,” she said.
The twin sisters said that when they have children they will consider themselves as mothers to all the children.
“I’m going to feel like I’m also the mother of Brittany’s children and she’ll feel like she’s also the mother of my children,” Briana said.
Josh said that the twin brothers had thought early in life that if they don’t find twin sisters they would not marry. “It’s just a bond and understanding that you couldn’t find anywhere else,” he said.
Briana described Josh and Jeremy as twin princes and gushed about their fairytale ending.
“We [feel] really lucky that we found them. To find the woman of your dreams and she has a twin sister for my twin brother,” Josh said.

Having spent nine months together in their mother’s womb, twins often share an incredibly close and special bond.
Identical twin sisters Jalynne April Crawford and Janelle Ann Leopoldo are no exception.
Writing for Love What Matters, Crawford wrote, “The bond is so strong that one can feel what the other feels, and vice versa.”
Growing up, Crawford and Leopoldo were inseparable. The twins both loved doing the same thing together, even though they have different personalities.
“We dressed alike every day, shared a car and cell phone, had the same friends … we were glued to each other’s hip,” Crawford recalled.
Living in a big family of nine, their siblings always adored their close-knit relationship, which they referred to as the “twin connection.”
In high school, Crawford even dreamed about living near each other “with our houses connected by a bridge,” and having babies together.
“Growing up, my twin sister and I talked about how neat it would be to get married together and have babies together,” Leopoldo told Good Morning America.
In 2017, the twin sisters’ dream came true when they found out they were both pregnant in the same gestational period.
“When I got the text my face lit up,” Crawford, who learned about her pregnancy four days before Leopoldo, told PEOPLE. “I got chills in my arm, and then seconds later she called and we were both like ‘Thank you, thank you, God.’”

The news was the rainbow after the storm, because previously, they had both suffered from miscarriages, and Leopoldo had struggled with infertility and was also diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome—a disorder of chronically abnormal ovarian function and hyperandrogenism (abnormally elevated androgen levels)—and also had an ectopic pregnancy.
