Twenty-seven years ago, two Massachusetts babies were born on the same day at the same hospital. Now, the pair is getting married.
“If somebody out on the streets were to tell me our story, I would be like, ‘I don’t believe you,’” groom Aaron Bairos of Taunton joked in an interview with InsideEdition.com.
Bairos and his bride, Jessica Gomes, were married last month.
On April 28, 1990, Bairos and Gomes were the only two babies born at Morton Hospital.
“The hospital we were born at was a fairly small hospital, and it’s kind of the only one in the city so the chances of us being born there were pretty [good],” Bairos said. “Both our mothers remember seeing each other.”
Gomes said there might be a photo of them together from the hospital shortly after birth, but the background was blurry and it’s difficult to tell whether it is Bairos in the basket behind her.
Although their community is small, Gomes said they met formally in high school through friends and started dating as teenagers.
“Because we’ve all kind of grown up together, every year for our birthday we do something big,” Bairos said.
When asked whether they believed being born at the same time was fate, Gomes answered, “I think it is.”
