A Year After Her Birth Video Of Her Twins Holding Hands Went Viral, She Says They Really Do Have A Special Bond
We all know that twins have a special bond that most of us single-borns can’t even fathom. That’s why there’s arguably nothing more entertaining than hearing unbelievable stories of twins showing the world the depth of their connection.
And this connection is no better illustrated than by a video that’s been making the rounds on the internet a year after it was posted.
The viral video of newborn twins holding hands gives us a glimpse into the transcendent bonds that twins have.
The video centers around new mother Celi who is holding her twin baby girls for the first time. For starters, Celi herself is an incredible woman–a budding army officer who happens to be a super-prolific entrepreneur. Not only is Celi is a Youtuber and Podcaster at Twinbaby Adventures and “Women in Season” respectively, but she is also an influencer who runs the Fitbreezylife wellness Instagram account. And if that resume wasn’t already impressive enough, she gave birth to twin baby girls Genesis and Genevie in June of 2018. Celi documented the first few moments of post-partum on her Instagram account. Needless to say, her followers were shook.
In the video, the freshly-born babies reach for each other and tightly grip one another’s hands while lying on Celi’s chest.
The incredible video shows Celi holding her twin baby girls right after she gave birth to them. As soon as the baby on the right is placed on Celi’s chest, she reaches for the hand of her twin sister. As if on cue, the baby on the right grabs hold of her sister’s hand tightly. The two continue to hold tightly onto one another, prompting the nurse to exclaim: “Oh! Look at them hold hands!”.
Naturally, Celi becomes overcome with emotion, laughing and crying as her twin girls hold onto each other as if they never want to let go. As the twins continuing to hold each other, the other bystanders in the room also begin to express their amazement. “Oh my god!” we hear someone say off-camera. “That is so precious. You guys are going to make me cry”. As the babies hold on to each other tightly, the nurse reiterates her shock at the scene: “They literally reached for each other. I’ve never seen this,” the nurse says.
As for Celi, she believes that the gesture was more than just a coincidence.
Celi explained to Buzzfeed that, while she was pregnant, one of her twins suffered from more complications than the other. According to Celi, the baby on the left was born first, and according to medical tests, was the stronger twin before being born. But the baby on the right “barely passed” some medical tests. “I thought that maybe, Baby A [on the left] knew her sister needed strength,” she told BuzzFeed. I’m not crying, you are!
Now, nearly a year after their birth, Celi says her daughters have changed a lot.
Not only have her daughters developed unique personalities, but Celi says they’re also not as dependent on each other as they were at first. “At 14 months, they’re honestly very different. One will get annoyed if she needs to share, and one is nicer,” Celi said. “I also sometimes go shopping with one and leave the other twin with dad at home, and they don’t really notice the other is gone”. And while we’re sure that the twins don’t need each other around 24/7 like they did while in-utero, we’re also pretty sure that these two will forever have a tight bond that no one else can compete with.
Needless to say, the video has people on the internet feeling all the feels.
We have to say, it’s so refreshing to see a heart-warming story about unconditional love when the news seems to be constantly bombarding us with tales of tragedy and horror. It’s stories like these that make us remember all of the good and love that there is in the world.
This woman, for example, wasn’t shy about sharing how much the story touched her:
It’s truly unbelievable that so many parents get to witness the unshakeable bond between their twins on a daily basis.
This woman said what we were all feeling:
If this didn’t make you want your own little bundles of joy ASAP, then you might just not have a pulse!
This girl added this video onto the list of reasons why she was feeling extra-emotional:
