Champion Township sisters give birth just 18 minutes apart

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - They've shared clothes.  They've shared secrets. Now, sisters Angie Piecuch and Lori Marsh get to share their babies' birthdays. 

On September 17th, Angie and Lori each welcomed their first born child into the world; Angie in Warren and Lori in Texas.

"It was crazy.  My mom was on the phone pretty much all day with my dad seeing how her progress was going, letting him know how I was doing and we never dreamt really that it would happen all at one time," said Angie Piecuch of Champion.

The sisters, who were due within 9 days of each other, delivered their babies, Carter and Elena, just 18 minutes apart.

"I always wanted to be there when Angie had her first kid.  So, not to be there was tough, but the experience of having them on the same day was cool," said new mom Lori Marsh.

And especially cool for first time grandparents Shirley and Dave Daniels, who joked it would have been easier having both daughters deliver in the same hospital. 

Dave flew to Texas to be with Lori. 

Shirley stayed back with Angie.

"They are beautiful, both of them.  It is just so exciting.  We were blessed with one of each and their healthy and we just thank the good lord for them.  They are beautiful," said grandma Shirley Daniels of Champion.
