Pictures: Identical twins deliver babies at the same time on same day

How cool is that?!

 Identical twins Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers, both 35,  welcomed their first children into the world on June 30 at 1:18 a.m. in different cities.

The babies were born at the same exact time in each sister's respective time zone, Rodgers gave birth first, to a boy at 1:18 a.m., in Denver, Colorado, and Mariuz's daughter was born at 1:18 a.m., in La Jolla, California.

"It's that magical twin connection I suppose," Mariuz tells PEOPLE magazine. "There have just been certain things in our life where things just match up – it's odd."

"We didn't plan being pregnant at the same time. But our journeys aligned, even giving birth! Twins have a special bond, it's hard to explain."

We were at our older sister's wedding recently, and, well, two pregnant chicks together, people couldn't stop talking about this," Rodgers said. "They kept asking us, 'Was it planned?' No! It was kind of entertaining."
