Photographer Notices Name Tags Of Babies Born 18 Hours Apart, Immediately Alerts Parents

Life has a funny way of offering up all kinds of ironic situations. Some of them are so unreal that you find yourself convinced that someone is behind the scenes pulling the strings to craft some sort of prank. This is one of those situations, but there was no TV host jumping out from behind the curtain to cackle gleefully at confused and unwitting people who are resisting the urge to strike him or her with a good deal of force.

As Goodfullness shares, this ironic situation took place in a hospital nursery of all places. While making the rounds, a hospital photographer noticed something absolutely fascinating about a pair of newborns that were born just 18 hours apart. The photographer was so amazed that she just had to capture a photo of the babies together.

The babies were born in a South Carolina hospital to two separate families that didn’t know each other. One of them was a boy named Romeo. The other was a girl named Juliet. The parents were happy to accommodate the photographer’s request, but their reasons for choosing the names had nothing to do with the tortured romance from the mind of William Shakespeare.

Juliet’s parents simply wanted a name that started with a J, while Romeo’s parents had named their child after a singer they were fans of. Nonetheless, it’s pretty fascinating that children with those names were born in the same hospital just hours apart. No word on whether sparks started to fly whenever Romeo and Juliet were together, but the families thankfully have a few years before they have to worry about those things.

Either way, the adorable pics and the fascinating story have been gaining a ton of attention. Perhaps that will spark a renaissance of sort for Shakespeare’s work, or at the very least lead to more people poking around the famous tale. We’ll consider ourselves unsurprised if the names Romeo and Juliet begin creeping up the popular baby name charts.
