Twin sisters have given birth to baby girls only two hours apart — and in the same Indianapolis hospital.

WTHR-TV in Indianapolis reports that 22-year-olds Charron (SHA'-ron) and Chardee (SHAR'-day) Hampton welcomed their daughters to the world on Monday at St. Vincent Women's Hospital.

      More women opting for preventive mastectomy - but should they be?

      Rates of women who are opting for preventive mastectomies, such as Angeline Jolie, have increased by an estimated 50 percent in recent years, experts say. But many doctors are puzzled because the operation doesn't carry a 100 percent guarantee, it's major surgery -- and women have other options, from a once-a-day pill to careful monitoring.

Charron Hampton was past her due date and went to the hospital to be induced. Shortly after, Chardee Hampton went into labor and rushed to the same hospital. WRTV says both babies were born in an uncommon face-up position and measured 21 inches long.

The sisters are both engaged — and are deciding if they should share the same wedding day too.

Charron Hampton named her daughter Chanise (SHA-niece) Amari Monroe, and Chardee Hampton named her daughter Trinity Dominick (DOM-eh-nique) Brown.
