Defying odds of 150,000-1, a pair of twin brothers became fathers on the same day, in the same hospital, by the same midwife and both the babies are two days early.

Just within a few hours apart, Jeromme and Jarrell Spence from Fordhouses in the United Kingdom became fathers for the first time when their partners gave birth to baby boys at New cross Hospital Wolverhampton, England, 24 November.

Partners of the twins gave birth in the same water pool in the same room, Mirror reports.

Jeromme's partner Tegan Compton, 19, gave birth to son Cameron at 2:04 a.m. GMT, while Jarrell's girlfriend Francesca Ashe, also 19, gave birth to son Cassen at 4:34 a.m. GMT.

United Kingdom's largest betting and gaming company, Ladbrokes bookmakers, told BBC that the odds of something like this happening was "at least 150,000/1".

The midwife who delivered both the babies, Barbara Kapoor, said: "I have never ever heard of this happening before. It is amazing."

Jeromme works in a sports shop, while Jarrell works at a catering firm.

Earlier, when the twins had learnt that their partners had the same due date, 26 November, both were shocked but did not believe that the two women would be delivering the babies on the same day.

Jerome said: "We knew that our partners were both given the same due date, but we just never expected the births to be really on the same day. Tegan and me came in first and little Cameron was born just a few hours later. Then the pool was washed and cleaned, and we handed over to Jarrell and Francesca."

Meanwhile, Jarrell said: "We got here at about two in the morning and we could hear someone's voice and I said, 'that's Tegan'. Mum was with me so when Tegan gave birth she went over to see her grandson and then a couple of hours later she had another one. It is absolutely amazing that we became fathers of sons on the same day. It is great for everyone and everyone at the hospital was great."
