Sibling relationships are incredibly unique and unreplaceable, and they also share a specific kind of kinship. When you can share your excitement with a sibling, it multiplies double. And there was much to celebrate for Amber and Autum, twin sisters…
Since they were little children, twin sisters Autum Shaw and Amber Tramontana have done everything together. The sisters’ unshakable relationship continued to become stronger as they grew older.
When both of the sisters gave birth to their children at the same time, it garnered media attention. On October 29, 2020—their own 33rd birthday—both sisters gave birth to healthy baby daughters 90 minutes apart from one another.
The sisters were both admitted to Knoxville, Tennessee’s Fort Sanders Regional Hospital. The same doctor, Dr. George Vick, delivered both Blakely and Baby Charleston.
Baby Blakely arrived next at 7 pounds. 2 oz., and baby Charleston arrived at a robust 9 lbs., 4 oz. The huge coincidence was not taken lightly by the hospital where the infants were delivered, and they wrote about it on social media.
“Twice the sweetness and double the love!” they captioned a photo of the twin sisters hugging their babies of joy. At Fort Sanders Regional, it was a memorable day this week as identical twins Autum and Amber gave birth to their daughters, Charleston and Blakely, only 90 minutes apart. It was also Autum and Amber’s birthdays, which was the cherry on top.
The sisters have an extremely close relationship. Even as adults, the two have never been able to remain apart. Amber and Autum obtained their undergraduate and graduate degrees from the same university. The sisters eventually earned their licenses to practice nursing separately and jointly as registered nurses.
Both Amber and Autum, who gave birth to their boys ten weeks apart in 2018, have sons. Despite having a gap at birth, the boys’ weights and lengths were the same.
Autum first experienced a miscarriage when trying for her second child. She was devastated, but she now feels that God had a purpose. She experienced another miscarriage not long after. Just a few weeks into their pregnancies, the sisters told each other they were expecting and discovered they share the same due date!
We wrestled with the question, “Why did we have to go through this?” after our miscarriage, admits Autum. “But we believed that God had a purpose for us,” she continues. Amber said that even though she asked for twins, she now believes that God provided a better method for her kid to have a friend.
In 2018, when the twins gave birth to their kids, Autum experienced labor first. Everyone anticipated that things would go in a similar manner this time as well, but Amber was the one to experience labor symptoms first.
The sisters gave birth in apartments that were close together. The infants, according to Autum, connected right away. She said, “They clicked like they’d been together for nine months in the womb.
The girls’ union had the twins in a state of ecstasy. They think Charleston and Blakely will get along just as their mothers did.
The birthday gift just keeps getting better, Amber added.
