An Illinois couple is celebrating the birth of their twins who were born in different states on different days and in different hospitals.

The two are called delayed interval twins.

The first baby was born at a Belleville, Illinois hospital on October 1. Doctors gave the mother medication to stop contractions for the second baby girl because she wasn't ready to come out. About a week later, the couple and newborn flew to a St. Louis hospital, where the second twin was born on October 6.
