FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — A Florida mother and daughter who gave birth at the same hospital on the same day have returned home with their new babies — together.
Heather Penticoff, 40, and her 20-year-old daughter Destinee Martin discovered they were pregnant the same day. Each gave birth Tuesday in Fort Myers.
Penticoff's daughter Madeline was born first and Martin's son Damien was born almost three hours later, making Penticoff's grandson roughly the same age as her newborn daughter.
On Thursday, they all returned to their Lee County home, with Damien across the hall from Madeline.
Martin tells WZVN-TV (http://bit.ly/1ut7CLs) that she wasn't thrilled initially when her mother announced her pregnancy. But she says the shared experience turned out "a lot nicer than if it wouldn't have went that way."
