Twins Born 87 Days Apart!

As Maria Jones-Elliott hugs her two babies, she hails them as “little miracles”.

For twins Amy and Katie were ­incredibly born 87 days apart.

Maria went into labour four months early, giving birth to Amy – but Katie did not arrive until three months later.

Their incredible births will now ­become a Guinness World Record for the “longest interval between the birth of twins”. The previous record is 84 days.

Doctors have told Maria and husband Chris they have achieved the medical equivalent of winning the lottery, with both girls surviving and healthy.

Wow!  What an amazing story (and beautiful baby girls!).
