“[We were] very close growing up. We have always done everything together so this is just another example of that,” Nicole told Nine.

Gillianne and Nicole said there would be “an extra big celebration” every year for the newborn cousins.

The sisters, who have shared so much together throughout their lives, said having their sons on the same day, in the same hospital, takes “twinning to a new level.”

“Hopefully they will be as close as we are because it really is a special bond that we have,” Nicole shared.
