OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -

They are twins who were born on different days, but now their first born children share the same birthday.

On Monday, sisters Kayla Dutton and Kortney Dutton delivered their babies within 90 minutes of each at Menorah Medical Center in Overland Park. Kayla gave birth to son Jax at 9:19 p.m. while Kortney gave birth to daughter Nevaeha at 10:37 p.m.

The sisters said they are beside themselves with motherly joy and the experience of a lifetime.

They grew up doing similar things as most siblings, particularly twins, do. So when Kayla found out she was pregnant, her sister kept describing similar feelings.

"I was like, 'Kortney, you're pregnant,'" she recalled. "Then she took a pregnancy test and found out she was."

They admit that they were relieved that they became pregnant at the same time. They admit they would have been disappointed if it hadn't worked out that way.

"It helps a lot that the person you've done everything with your whole life being in a situation the same as you, something that life-changing," Kayla said.

The two have a tight bond and often finish each other sentences. They enjoy always having someone around, but admit at times it got tough as kids always having to share.

The two say they can often look at each other and tell what the other is thinking, but they don't have "telepathic" abilities that some twins say they have.

Twenty years ago, the sisters were born an hour and 40 minutes apart, which resulted in them having different calendar days for their birthdays. Kortney thought she would give birth first.

"I wanted to be first because I've been first at everything," she explained.

Initially, the two had expected to give birth up to five days apart. Kayla's delivery was delayed by her doctor because her baby wasn't in position.

And thus they wound up having C-sections induced on the same day.

"That it happened the same day is pretty wild," Kayla said. "I think it's God's plan. Obviously someone wanted us to do this together, we might not find out for a while, but there's a reason obviously."

Both are thrilled to have a beautiful and healthy babies.

"They're perfect," Kayla said.

Jax weighed 8 pounds and 6 ounces while Nevaeha weighed 7 pounds and 7 ounces.

Jax and Nevaeha will grow up extra close like their moms.

"They'll be around each other as much as we are," Kortney said. "We just got a house together so they'll be growing up pretty much like brother and sister."

And both mothers expect a hard work being a mom. Their mother is eagerly looking forward to babysitting her grandchildren.

"I think the first time she might rip her hair out," Kayla said.

"It will certainly take her back," Kortney replied.

"I don't want them to grow up," Kayla said.

"Me neither," Kortney replied.

Twins run in the family but often skips a generation, so only time will tell if the family has more birthday stories to tell.
