Mum has twins with different nationalities

A woman has given birth to twins on the same day who have different nationalities, reports the Daily Mail.

Baby Dylan is English and his sister Hannah is Scottish, after they were born on different sides of the English and Scottish boarder.

Donna Keenan, 28, went into labour prematurely at home in Northumberland and gave birth to Dylan, who weighed 5lb 13oz, at home. She said it all happened so fast the paramedics had to deliver her first baby on the living room floor.

“I called the hospital and they said to come straight in, but we didn’t have time. We called the paramedics and the next thing I remember is them saying to get ready to have the baby on the living room floor,” said Donna.

Donna was then rushed to hospital across the border in Scotland. She needed to travel this distance because the twins were premature.

Donna’s baby daughter Hannah was born an hour and forty minutes after her brother.

The babies father said they are still getting used to the idea that their children have different nationalities.

“I’ve been looking online for an England babygro for Dylan and a Scotland one for Hannah,” said the babies’ father Joe Fox.

“It was an amazing experience to say the least and Donna was brilliant,” he said.
