Multiples like to joke about how one is two or three minutes older. But identical twins Aria and Skylar, who were born to dads Kyran Trodden and Ryan Morgan in November, came into the world at the exact same time.

“They looked like koalas gripping on to one another,” Morgan, 28, told TODAY Parents. “They came out as one.”

Captured on camera, the stunning moment shows the sisters embracing as their surrogate mother delivered them via C-section at a hospital in the United Kingdom.

"It was just amazing," Morgan gushed.

Though the babies were born premature and spent several weeks in the newborn intensive care unit, or NICU, they are now home with their parents.

“Aria and Skylar are very in sync. They make the same unique noises at the same time,” Trodden, 25, revealed. “They also calm each other down. When we put them together, they just sort of mellow.”

Trodden recalled how their favorite NICU nurse would put the girls in the the same incubator when they were crying.

“If changing and feeding them wasn’t enough, she’d bring Aria over to Skylar and they’d just cuddle into each other,” Trodden said. “We’d find them almost on top of each other. I’d be like, ‘Are they comfortable? Can they breathe?’ And the nurse would assure us that’s just how they like to be.”

Trodden and Morgan are relishing every minute with their two babies, who were diagnosed with twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) at 20 weeks gestation. TTTS happens when the blood flows unequally in the womb between twins who share a placenta, depriving one twin of blood. According to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, it happens in about 10% to 15% of monochorionic-diamniotic twin pregnancies.

“It was terrifying. We were at risk of losing one or both,” Morgan said. “We’re just so grateful they’re both here.”
