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:

Excuse us while we bookmark this video for the next time we feel like we need a good cry.

This 8-Year-Old Ran Away From Home When His Mom Told Him The Three Kings Forgot Him But His Story Has A Happy Ending

From a young age we’ve been told, “It’s the thought that counts,” and to accept any gift with a smile. But this little boy was not about to take the disrespect. An eight-year-old boy from Guanajuato woke up on January 7 to find that his letter to the three kings was left unanswered—so naturally, he ran away from home.

Juan Daniel was found wandering the streets by police in Santa Teresa, Guanajuato. 

Police said the boy told them that he had found his unanswered letter to the three kings inside his shoes where he had left it the night before.

His mom told him los Reyes forgot about him.

When he asked his mother why the three kings hadn’t brought him the talking robot he had asked for, she told him that they had forgotten about him. Upset at the oversight, Juan Daniel ran away.

The 8-year-old had asked for a robot that says the words “Love me, hug me.”

The police picked him up and called his family

The minor was taken to Social Services where his uncles came to the rescue —his mom arrived moments later, she had reported her son missing just a few hours prior. 

The officers were touched by the boy’s disappointment

Moved by the story, officers and administrative staff at the police station raised money to buy him the gifts that had not appeared.

An officer even played the role of the Kings’ emissary

Soon after, a police officer carrying a bag of toys came to the station pretending to be an emissary of the three kings. He told Juan Daniel the kings had been busy so they had asked him to help pass out toys to children.

Juan Daniel got his presents in the end.

The boy opened the bag to find the robot he had asked for, as well as a train, a ball, notebooks and a box of crayons. Meanwhile, social workers provided support to the boy’s mother for problems with addiction.

All Of The Times Our Mamas And Abuelas Taught Us What Love And Fun Were In 2019

Abuelas and mamas are the best. They’re wise, fierce, cranky, and, if you’re lucky, they are so loving. That is why it’s so important to pay them the respect they’ve earned, while also celebrating their incredible life. People should honor their grandparents each year as if it’s their last — and in a way that they’d love. In 2019, there’s no denying that they delivered!

Here’s a look at all of the abuelas and mamas who killed it in 2019.

A family in Arizona surprised their 93-year-old abuela on her birthday and holy hell was it sweet. As soon as nana opened the door, her family started playing mariachi music, and she loved it! We have no idea how many people were in that house, but by the sounds of it, there was a lot. Her stunned face clearly showed she had no idea a birthday party in her honor would be behind the door.

One Twitter user, who goes by the name of @whoissd, went viral when she had a birthday celebration for her son that emphasized just how much teaching the old to the new is vital. For her son, Silas Cash’s, first birthday, SD threw an authentic lowrider party — complete with the recognizable cruisers in attendance.

One mom’s Facebook post went viral after she shared that she hosted a makeshift job fair for her children after they kept asking for a higher allowance. “My children continue to ask for a new cell phone, an allowance, and to go places,” the mother, Shaketha Marion McGregor wrote in her Facebook post. “Yesterday I told them that I’ve heard their requests and that I’ll have a surprise for them today when they get home from school. SURPRISE!!! It’s a whole hiring event. If you want it, work for it, earn it!”
And yes, she even had an in-home credit union (wait, what even is that? These kids are about to be ready for when #adulting hits them). McGregor’s Facebook post has already gotten over 212K likes, 35K comments, and over 130K shared on the social media platform.

This mom who still crushes on the father of her kids after all of these years.

Earlier this year in May, Rocio Andujo tweeted about her parents’ love story. The 21-year-old from Texas shared that her mom and dad, Rosalia and Robert, have been together for 27 years. Like any good romantic drama, their love affair started with friction. Dad, the playboy of the block, was head over heels for mom, who knew better than to give the player any play — until she did. “My mom always knew my dad was a ladies’ man & wouldn’t really take any girl serious so she always rejected him… because she didn’t want to be just another girl on his list (her words),” Rocio, who works as a server while attending college, said, according to BuzzFeed. “After a year & months of my dad chasing after my mom & trying to get a chance with her she finally gave him a chance since she saw that he kept insisting and insisting even after she would reject him.”

Apparently, her pops was sprung, and everyone around them took notice.
“Everyone could see how in love my dad was with my mom and everyone would get surprised because they had never seen my dad so in love with a girl before,” Rocio wrote. But Robert wasn’t the only one all heart-eyes in the relationship. Rocio discovered something recently that proves that her mom has been equally enamored all these years: a collection of all the flowers that Robert gave Rosalia during all the years they were boyfriend and girlfriend. “No one knew my mom had kept those flowers. She also still has the first bouquet of roses he gave her,” Rocio said.
