A Tampa, Florida family welcomed two new babies on Thursday: One born from a mother and the other from her daughter, My Fox Tampa Bay reported. 

Angela Patram, 37, and her oldest daughter, 20-year-old Teranisha Billups, gave birth to a baby girl and baby boy, respectively, a mere 34 minutes apart.

“I’ve been in this field for 29 years … I’ve seen maybe 14,000 deliveries,” Dr. Atef Zakhary, who practices at Tampa General Hospital, where the babies were born, wrote in an announcement on the hospital’s website. “I’ve never seen a mom and daughter deliver on the same day.”

“It’s a blessing,” Patram, who is a surgical oncology nurse, told the news website.
