Twins Hold Hands After Birth

Take one look at this remarkable photo, and you'll see why it's garnering attention around the world.

The striking image, taken at a hospital in northern Spain, shows twins holding hands shortly after birth.

Delivered by Caesarean section at a hospital in Gipuzkoa, Danel and Maria were placed alongside each other in an incubator when the twins grabbed a hold of each other, Spanish-language wire service EFE reports.

"They each looked different ways and yet they naturally joined hands," Dr. Javier Rodriguez told EFE.

Calling the embrace "instinctive," Rodriguez said this is the first time he has seen anything like it. After the pair interlocked their hands and fingers, a nurse managed to capture the moment.

How sweet is this?!? Love!
