Yes, that’s right. These twins have taken the sibling rivalries to a whole new level. Looks like they can’t even wait until they enter into the world.
A clip in China has gone viral after an ultrasound showed identical twins fighting inside the womb. The clippings showed the two foetuses seeming to hit each other. Mr Tao, the father, had filmed the video during an antenatal check.
He thought it was hilarious to see unborn daughters ‘boxing with each other for a few rounds’, but never thought his children were going ‘to be internet stars before being born’.
Since the clip was shared online, the cheeky pair have been born and were given the nicknames ‘Cherry’ and ‘Strawberry’.
The video has received more than 2.5 million likes and 80,000 comments. One viewer wrote: “Whoever wins [the fight] can be the elder one when they are born,”
while a second person added: “They fight in [their mother’s] belly, but will love each other when they are born.”
Mr Tao, explained that he had also seen them hugging each other during another visit to the doctors.
The loving dad said one was hugging the other while his wife was undergoing an amniotic fluid test.
He said: “We were so touched. The babies were so small and they knew how to look after each other. I believe they will live with each other in harmony when they grow up.”
And according to the father, the pair shared the same amniotic sac and placenta while inside the womb. Scientifically known as monochorionic monoamniotic twins – or ‘mo-mo twins’ – it is one of the rarest types of pregnancy, occurring once in every 35,000 to 60,000 per year.
Luckily, the babies were born without any complications. Surely, they would be there for each other and fight it out together.
