It's not surprising when twins have a special bond - after all, they typically do just about everything together, at least for the first few years of their lives. Cases in point: The Frozen reenacting twins and the brothers who can't stop partying all night long. But this super sweet photo shows a pair of twin sisters whose bond is already as strong as can be - and they're still in utero.
Carissa Gill and Randy Good, a Pennsylvania couple expecting twin girls, went into Fetal Vision Imaging for their standard 25-week ultrasound, but they weren't prepared for what they'd see. The clear-as-day 3D image showed their daughters apparently sharing a kiss in the womb.
Can you believe that timing? The photo almost looks posed. (Though, for the record, their ultrasound tech insisted it wasn't faked.)
Fetal Vision shares photos of many of its clients' gender reveal sonograms on Instagram. But understandably, Gill and Good's photo is one of its more popular shots.
"It was just so exciting to see them like that," Gill told Inside Edition. "I didn't think that they were going to be that close together, but they are, and it was just so beautiful to see." The full video showed even more of the kiss in action. "It first started off 'Baby B' was kissing 'Baby A' on the cheek and then they started getting closer and then they actually kissed on the mouth," she continued. "You can see their mouths open and close, it was just so cute."
The identical twins - who will be named Isabella and Callie, according to Gill's Instagram - even surprised the ultrasound technician. "I've done 15,000 of these, and I've never seen twins face-to-face, looking like they're kissing," John Hamburg of Fetal Vision told The Huffington Post. "Usually, one's head is up and the other is down."
Gill was happy to see her photo go viral, because, well, it's pretty freakin' adorable. "I would love to share this story with the world," the expecting mom told Fox 29. "Pregnancy is a beautiful thing to capture, especially when you get to see moments like this."
