Speaking to PEOPLE, Jill said the situation felt like ‘it was supposed to be’.

She added: ‘It is a little surprising because what are the odds? But it’s like, of course this would happen to us.’

The twins had planned to get pregnant at the same time, but never expected they would welcome their children within hours of each other.

Jill was scheduled for a cesarean section at the Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Anaheim on May 5, because Oliver was found to be in breech position – lying feet first.

Erin wasn’t due to give birth to Silas until May 15, but her water broke the same day.

She said: ‘I called my husband, Zach, and I said, “Okay, this isn’t a joke. My water just broke. I’m going to need you to come home from work and take me to labour and delivery”‘.

The twins have now moved closer to each other in California to their sons can grow up together.

‘That’s just another really special thing for our sons — they’re going to have a sense of closeness that they can also rely on each other the way that my sister and I did,’ Jill said.
