Best Friends Since 5th Grade Give Birth on the Same Day: 'Our Girls Will Share the Same Relationship'

They started as friends in the 5th grade, and now, two women in southern California will have another kind of forever bond: their daughters share the same exact birthday.

Kelcey Harris and Dezhana Stallworth both gave birth to baby girls on Sunday, according to ABC affiliate KABC-TV.

The timing just happened to work out.

Harris was originally due on Nov. 14, but didn't go into labor until nearly three weeks later, on Dec. 3, the outlet reported. Coincidentally, Stallworth had a cesarean section scheduled for the next day.

In the end, both women welcomed their bundles of joy just hours apart.
