MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) — They may be uncle and nephew, but two newborns may feel more like brothers after being born just minutes apart.

Theresa Crouse, 39, gave birth to a son at MedCentral/Mansfield Hospital at 11:20 a.m. Monday. At 11:27, her daughter, Carrie Gresh, had her own baby boy at the same hospital — and delivered by the same doctor.

Mrs. Gresh, 21, said the two women suffered through morning sickness together and thought their babies would arrive hours apart.

Mrs. Crouse said she went into induced labor because of a medical condition and her daughter’s labor was induced at the same time.

Mrs. Crouse called her little boy, Caleb Izus Crouse, a miracle. “I had been wanting to have a second child for more than 20 years,” she said. “I was told I wouldn’t be able to have any more children.”

Mrs. Gresh said it’s going to be interesting watching new brother and her boy, Landin, grow up and go to school together. The extended family currently lives in the same duplex.

“I think this will be great,” Mrs. Crouse said. “They’ll grow up like brothers.”
