It's a matter of timing for a pair of Evansville twins who became parents within an hour of each other.

The fraternal siblings had their babies on Monday  at two different hospitals. Both sets of parents had healthy baby boys, one born at 2:05, the other at 3:02.

Their mother had joked about a synchronized birth, but never expected it would really happen.

"And I was like, 'Oh my gosh, here we go'," said Melissa Church. "So excited, a lot of my friends have been so excited. We've been texting all day. Twins having twins on the same day this is so cool, really cool."

Now she has two healthy grandsons - and a heck of a story to tell.
