Twin mothers Aimee, left, and Ashlee Nelson hold their newborn sons Donavyn Scott Bratten, left, and Aiden Lee Alan Dilts on Monday.

Ohio twins give birth 2 hours apart

– Aiden and Donavyn didn’t wait until New Year’s Day to come screaming into the world, but the circumstances of their births are still pretty special: The babies were born about two hours apart to Ohio mothers who are identical twins.

The Akron Beacon Journal reported that the 19-year-old mothers – Aimee and Ashlee Nelson – weren’t raised to do things alike and did not plan the births to come at the same time. In fact, their due dates were about a week apart.

Aimee’s son, Donavyn Scott Bratten, was born just after noon on the last day of 2012.

Ashlee’s son, Aiden Lee Alan Dilts, made his appearance about 2 p.m.

They were delivered by the same doctor at Summa Akron City Hospital.
