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.

Vanessa Bryant Forced To Respond To ‘Beyond Hurtful’ Comments Made By Her Own Mom On ‘El Gordo y La Flaca’

STEPHEN DUNN / GETTY

Within just nine months, Vanessa Bryant has (like all of us) had to deal with the stress and uncertainty of a pandemic, racial crisis and injustice, and the threats of unstable political leadership. She has also had to deal with the almighty devastation of losing her husband and daughter on the same day. You think this would be enough to ensure that she receives only sympathy, support, and light during this time but not so.

Recently, the wife of the late basketball great Kobe Bryant is dealing with negative claims taken to the press by her own mother.

In an interview with Univision, Bryant’s mother Sofia Laine claimed her daughter had kicked her out of her home.

Appearing on “El Gordo y La Flaca,” Laine claimed that her 38-year-old daughter had forced her out of a family home and made her return the car she used.

In a statement to People, Bryant defended herself saying “My husband and daughter passed away unexpectedly, and yet my mom has the audacity to do an interview on TV talking negatively about me while shedding tears about a car and home that wasn’t in her name.”

“She has removed all her diamond jewelry, emptied her apartment that I provide, and put the furniture in storage to appear as though she is without support,” Bryant went onto claim. “My husband and I have financially supported her over the past 20 years, and I continue to do so, in addition to her monthly alimony.”

Bryant went onto add that “contrary to previous reports, she has not been physically present or emotionally supportive for my daughters and me after my husband and daughter passed away. Going forward, I see what is most important to my mom and it is beyond hurtful. I hope this public airing of our personal relations will stop here.”

Bryant lost her husband, the late NBA star, and the couple’s second-oldest daughter Gianna in a tragic helicopter crash in January.

The crash claimed the lives of seven other people including Payton Chester, 13, Sarah Chester, 46, Alyssa Altobelli, 14,Keri Altobelli, 46, John Altobelli, 56, Christina Mauser, 38, and the helicopter’s pilot Ara Zobayan, 50.

These Twin Sisters Gave Birth To Babies Just One Day Apart From Each Other And It’s The Sweetest Thing

Just when you thought identical twins couldn’t get any closer!

When “Total Bellas” stars Brie and Nikki Bella (twin sisters and WWE fighters) first announced that they were pregnant, no doubt their fans were delighted twofold! Now there’s even more room for excitement. The twin sisters, who star on the reality show “Total Bellas,” announced over the weekend that they each gave birth to baby boys.

Just one day apart from each other!

In a post to her Instagram page, Brie Bella was the first to share the news.

“It’s a BOY!!!” Brie wrote in a caption to her Instagram page, noting that her son was born on the first of August. “We are overwhelmed with joy and everyone is healthy!!!”

This is Brie’s second child with her husband Daniel Bryan.

Just a few hours later, Nikki Bella made a separate announcement revealing that she’d given birth just one day before.

Writing about her son’s birth, Nikki wrote “Our baby boy is here and we couldn’t be HAPPIER and more in LOVE! Everyone is safe and healthy.” She noted that her son was born just one day before her new nephew on August 31, 2020.

Before they delivered their two sons, the 36-year-old sisters posed for photos earlier this year celebrating their twinning motherhood.

“This pregnancy has been a special one. To experience this with my sister during a time of uncertainty and turmoil has been a blessing,” she wrote in a post back in July. “As Twins I kept wondering if our bodies were going to change the same or if we’d be different. It’s crazy how identical our pregnancies have become…from cravings to symptoms. We are coming to the end of our pregnancy and this will be one I’ll remember forever. Can’t wait to meet her little boy and I can’t wait to see what I’ll be having. This pregnancy started as a surprise and I’m happy to end it as one.”

In a separate post, Nikki Bella called her pregnancy an “incredible journey” despite current tough times. “I have embraced the changes of the human body, even though that can be tough at times. I have embraced the feeling of being uncomfortable knowing I am growing a life that will be one of my own,” she wrote. “I have already felt the lioness in me come out even more knowing that I am ready to protect, teach, love and guide. And to go through all of this with my twin sister? Goodness I would say I am one lucky woman that God knew my timing of becoming a mom was divine. Can’t wait to meet you little boy in 4 weeks.”

Throughout their pregnancies, the sisters were open to sharing their process with tons of beautiful pictures on their social media accounts.
