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.

Looks like Nick Cannon is going to be a father…again! This time around, he’s having babies with none other than DJ and Mexicana Abby De La Rosa. To make things more exciting, Nick Cannon and Abby De La Rosa are having twins!

On Sunday, Abby De La Rosa made the pregnancy announcement official when she posted a series of lavish photos of her and Cannon to her Instagram page.

A post shared by Abby De La Rosa (@hiabbydelarosa)

The maternity photoshoot featured Abby De La Rosa and Nick Cannon in a sunlit forest. Abby De La Rosa was wearing a shirt made of pearls while Nick Cannon stood next to her. Abby also posted other photos of herself in the dessert, clothed in flowing robes.

Ever the excited mother, Abby De La Rosa also included a heartfelt caption to the beautiful photos.

“Our dearest sons – my miracle babies, thank you for choosing me to be your Mommy. I know the Lord has destined me and prepared me for the gift of not one but two little angels. I pray that God give you both the strength to walk brave and boldly in your individual truth just like your Daddy.”

“That God bless you and your brother and guide you into living out your full purpose. Your Dad & I will always be here for you both; in complete unison and support. No matter what this world may throw your way, know that forgiveness is key and what is for you – is for YOU! You both are already so loved and we can’t wait to meet you both.”

This will be Abby De La Rosa’s first-born children and Nick Cannon’s fifth and sixth. In December, Cannon welcomed a daughter named Powerful Queen with ex, Brittany Bell.

Although Abby De La Rosa has been very public and very excited about her twin babies for a while (just check out her Twitter feed), she had yet to reveal who the father was. Sunday marked the first time that Abby officially acknowledged that Nick Cannon was the father of her children (although she had been hinting at it for months).

Abby De La Rosa first began posting about her pregnancy in December as well, leading many snoopy fans to speculate about the timeline of Nick Cannon’s relationships.

For those who don’t know Abby De La Rosa, she is a successful Latina DJ and radio personality.

According to Real 92.3’s website, Abby De La Rosa began her radio DJ career at a Latin radio station in Los Angeles. She soon transitioned to working at Urban stations. Of Mexican descent, she often takes to social media to proudly proclaim her roots and celebrate her heritage.

“The most consistent craving I have is a warm bowl of sopa de Fideo with lemon & some Cheyenne pepper for that kick,” she wrote in December. “My babies are half Mexican & already loving the food lol.”

Congratulations to both Nick Cannon and Abby De La Rosa! We hope Mariah Carey’s children will be happy to have two new siblings!

You Won’t Believe How Good This 4-Year-Old’s Cover Of Selena’s ‘Bidi Bidi Bom Bom’ Is

You Won’t Believe How Good This 4-Year-Old’s Cover Of Selena’s ‘Bidi Bidi Bom Bom’ Is

The Internet once again delivers us a Selena-related gem and this time it’s in the form of a viral video featuring a little 4-year-old girl from the United Kingdom. The obviously very talented young singer is no stranger to Internet fame, she performs alongside her family in several videos, but her latest rendition of Selena’s hit ‘Bidi Bidi Bom Bom’ has introduced the young singer to an entirely new audience and we are living for it.

A four-year-old girl is going viral for her take on Selena’s iconic ‘Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.’

The adorable 4-year-old Maliya Kabs is charming everyone with her beautiful rendition of Selena’s anthem “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.”

The now-viral moment was caught on camera by her dad who is sitting in a car with his daughter as she shows off her multilingual skills. After discussing how she’s learned several languages — like Awngi, French, Portuguese, and Lingala — from various family members, her dad shares that he was able to speak 12 languages when he was her age. Clearly bored with the discussion, she eventually asks, “Really, Daddy? Can I just put on my songs?” before cranking up the late singer’s catchy tune.

She starts blasting “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” and belts out the catchy chorus and instructs her dad to sing. “Canta” she tells her father, who is surprised that his little girl would even know the Spanish lyrics to this song. “It means sing,” she explains to him.

It wasn’t just “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” that was “one of her songs.” Maliya goes on to sing “Como La Flor” with so much emotion while her dad, visibly shocked, watches her daughter sing along to Selena.

The video now has more than 2.3 million views on YouTube!

Maliya is a member of the UK-based Kabs Family, whose popular car singalongs have amassed millions of views on social media. The family has been making videos since 2018. Their first video went viral when Maliya, then one year old, danced to the popular kid’s song “Baby Shark” and sang to Cardi B’s “Finesse.”

Between nailing the Spanish lyrics and showcasing her passionate dance moves, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Maliya singing in an arena one day. We think that Selena herself would be very proud to see this little girl doing her song justice like this.
