There’s nothing like the bond built between sisters. And sometimes, as shown in a recent ultrasound image, that bond can be built before the sisters are even born!
Over the course of 22-year-old Carissa Gill’s pregnancy, ultrasounds have become a common occurrence. Because her pregnancy is considered high-risk, she and her boyfriend, Randy Good, have been travelling to appointments every other week. However, during a recent trip to Fetal Vision Imaging, a 3-D ultrasound revealed a beautiful moment—her twins (named Isabella and Callie), were shown kissing in the womb!
Gill told TODAY, “Bella was kissing Callie on the cheek, and then they actually started kissing. It was beautiful to see.”
The moment was a true family affair with both Gill and Good’s mothers, as well as Gill’s grandmother, there to witness the heartwarming moment.
Of their reactions, Gill told TODAY, “My grandma was just in total shock that all this (was) going on.”
Fetal Vision’s John Hamburg, the man who did the sonogram, was also surprised by the tender twin moment. “I’ve done 15,000 of these,” he said to The Huffington Post, “and I’ve never seen twins face-to-face, looking like they’re kissing,”
Okay, is it just us, or is this image actually amazing?! It’s a sweet reminder of the magic and mystery surrounding birth and the powerful bond between twins. The thought of the love forming between these sisters at only 25-weeks has our hearts officially melted.
“Pregnancy is a beautiful thing to capture,” Gill said to Fox 29, “especially when you get to see moments like this.”
