Do you have a twin? Or do you have twins around you? Have you been able to spot the bond between them or you just don’t understand?
Jalynne and Janelle Crawford are twins who have remained inseparable from birth and have always done everything together. We all thought it all ended in their everyday activities, but they had their kids the same day!
Being a twin is unlike anything you can explain or understand unless you are one yourself. The bond is so strong that one can feel what the other feels, and vice versa. Growing up we were inseparable. We dressed alike every day, shared a car and cell phone, had the same friends…we were glued to each other’s hip,” Jalynne told Love What Matters.
She continued: “Teachers would recommend to our parents we be in separate classes, and we would cry at the thought of being away from one another. Our mom did not have the heart to break that bond between us, and we were so thankful she kept us in the same classes.
That lasted until freshman year of high school. Teachers worried we would not be our true selves by always being in the same classroom, but we think it benefitted our personalities and we always had straight A’s.”
The twins had a language no one could understand but them while growing up. They wanted to live all their days together, they wanted to have their family very close to each other, their kids could attend same schools, be best friends and their respective families living as neighbors.
Jalynne was the first to get married to Brandon in 2011 and one and a half years later, Janelle got married.
They wanted to build a family at the same time, hence got pregnant 2 weeks apart.
Unfortunately, Janelle suffered from a miscarriage. Doctors discovered that she had some health issues that made it difficult for her to conceive. Janelle had an ectopic pregnancy and a history of the polycystic ovarian syndrome, while Jalynne had been through two miscarriages. They remained unfazed and decided to handle the situation together.
Six months later, Jalynne got pregnant and just four days after Janelle called to let her know she was pregnant.
During their checkups, the doctor was amazed that the kids were growing at the same rate and had the same measurements. It turned out there was the possibility of having their babies the same day.
Their long childhood dream was fulfilled as they had their kids roughly three hours apart from each other.
Janelle, the oldest of the two sisters, gave birth first to her son, Jace Alan Leopoldo. Just three hours later, Jalynne followed with her son, Bryson Ryder Crawford. We wish them the best of luck.
