“There’s no explaining that feeling except for pure, overwhelming joy and peace. Your life is literally complete,” Thomas told WGXA.


The doctors couldn’t plan it. Caleb’s wife and sister Kinsley both had babies on the same day, in the same hospital, separated by just a few feet.

“Even if it wasn’t a planned C-section, these babies would still be born the same day,” Linville said.

Kinsley said throughout their pregnancies, there were a lot of similarities. Both women shared with WGXA that they had struggled to conceive, they both had the same doctor and they even started showing at the same time.

Caleb told WGXA he knew the first cousins would share their first birthday since both moms were still pregnant and past their due dates.

“You heard the baby cry, as my wife is holding the baby trying to feed her, you heard Gabriel cry and like that’s just so surreal,” Linville explained.

Now, these siblings are making even more room at the table as babies Gabriel and Cassidy make their entrance just in time for Thanksgiving.

“I’m just super thankful and blessed, and I want to thank God. He’s the creator of these two babies, and he did a wonderful job,” Thomas said.
