    Twin sisters Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers have always had a lot in common and now their babies do, too.

    The identical twins, who are 35, each gave birth to their first child early Thursday. The babies were born at the same exact time in each sister's respective time zone — Rodgers gave birth first, welcoming a baby boy at 1:18 a.m., in Denver, Colorado, and Mariuz's daughter was born at 1:18 a.m., in La Jolla, California.

    The sisters and new moms told NBC's "Today" they're thrilled by the coincidence, if not all that surprised. The sisters said they've always been close but felt a special connection from the beginning of their pregnancies. 

    The moms and babies are home from the hospital and doing well, and the families are trying to work out a time to visit each other.
