EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

If one Oakland City woman could have been in two places at once Monday, she would have been.

Melissa Church has adult twins, a son and a daughter who live in Owensville.  Both of them became parents Monday.  

The problem?  The moms-to-be were at different hospitals, and their babies were born just one hour apart!

Melissa says they teased the moms-to-be all along that they'd go into labor on the same day, but never thought it would really happen.

"I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, here we go.  Both of them.'  I'm just so excited.  A lot of my friends are so excited.  We've been texting about it all day, twins having babies on the same day.  It's just cool, really cool," said Melissa.

Melissa's son is now dad to Gannon Brody, born at 2:05 p.m. at Deaconess Women's Hospital.  Melissa's daughter gave birth to John Henry at 3:02 p.m. at St. Mary's Women's and Infant Center.  Both babies are healthy.

You might be wondering: did Melissa make it to both births?  She did not.  She stayed with her daughter, whose delivery was planned for Monday.  Melissa's husband jetted back and forth between hospitals. 

Talk about a busy and exciting day for this first (and now second)-time grandma!
