Julian and Aria, twin babies born too soon premature 21 weeks gestation
Watch the Beautiful Moment Two Premature Twins Hold Hands on Their Dad's Chest
Spending the beginning of their lives side by side in extremely close quarters, twins share a unique bond most siblings probably can't understand. And, after watching this beautifully heartwarming video, it turns out that even after birth, twins can't help but crave a sense of closeness with each other.
Anthea Jackson-Rushford from Victoria, Australia, went into premature labor earlier this month, at only 29 weeks along. While obvious risks are involved with such an early birth, the twins (who weighed only two pounds each) defied all odds and are now said to be doing well.
In the video that has melted hearts all over the Internet, you can see the twins, Kristian and Kristiana, snuggling with their dad, Glen. Covered in a pastel blanket and cozy hats, the twins rest on Dad's chest, as he gazes down at them adoringly. What's most remarkable about the clip is seeing the boy never let go of his sister's hand as if to say, "I've got you."
In the background, you can hear Anthea saying, "He actually holds her hand. How is that possible? That's just unbelievable."
The proud parents are now patiently waiting and hoping to bring their babies home in a few weeks.
