Two star-crossed babies named Romeo and Juliet are stealing hearts after arriving unexpectedly early to different families at a South Carolina hospital.
Photos shared by Cassie Clayshulte, Coastal Carolina Hospital’s resident photographer, show the babies resting peacefully after their arrival.
According to CBS News, Morgan and Edwin Hernandez welcomed baby Romeo on Sunday. Just 18 hours later, Christina and Allan Shiffett welcomed baby Juliet.
Clayshulte made the exciting realization. After confirming her hunch at the nurses station, she asked both parents if she could photograph little Romeo and Juliet together.
Clayshulte couldn’t believe her luck.
“Both parents had picked the names out early on in their pregnancies, and neither couple knew each other until they met that day,” Clayshulte told CBS News.
She said the parents were touched by the photos.
“They both cried,” Clayshulte said.”They just loved them.”
