Incredible Moment Premature Twins Were Born Cuddling Each Other

Incredible Moment Premature Twins Were Born Cuddling Each Other

**Warning: Graphic/ distressing content follows**

An incredible photo showing a pair of premature twins cuddling each other as they were born has been revealed.

Aria and Skylar Morgan-Trodden, who were delivered by C-section 10 weeks premature, were holding each other during labour.

The twins were born by a surrogate mother to Kyran Trodden, 25, and his fiancé Ryan Morgan, 28.

As the identical girls were delivered, they can be seen holding on to one another, positioned exactly as they were snuggled in the womb just seconds before.

Kyran and Ryan became first-time dads in November, after a relative selflessly offered to carry a baby for them.

While they had excitedly documented every moment of the pregnancy, and were shocked to find out they were expecting twins, things to a turn for a worse when, at 20 weeks, the family were told their unborn daughters were diagnosed with TTTS - twin to twin transfusion syndrome.

The couple's surrogate was rushed to hospital the same day, to have laser ablation surgery which was successful.

Kyran said: "We were very anxious and scared but the hospital staff were absolutely amazing.

"We were heartbroken to not be able to be there with them," Kyran said. "But the staff were absolutely incredible and they kept us updated every single day with photos and videos

However, five weeks after their birth, the mono identical twins were allowed home, with the family united for Boxing Day.

"The whole journey was amazing," Kyran said. "We had our ups, downs, laughs and tears, and jam packed full of emotions. It really tested us, we felt every emotion.

"Obviously we went into it thinking we were having one baby but at six weeks we found out it was actually twins which was an amazing shock.

"To our surrogate, we will be forever in debt to her and can't thank her enough for the gift of two precious lives. We thank her so much, there are no words that can ever truly tell her how grateful we are."
