At a hospital in Hardeesville, South Carolina, unrelated babies named Romeo and Juliet were born hours apart on the same day.

The babies’ parents didn’t know about the interesting name similarity until after both babies were born down the hall from each other. Morgan and Edwin Hernandez had Romeo on March 19, and told the "Today" show that they named their son after musician Romeo Santos and had decided on the name before they were even expecting.

Christiana and Allen Shifflett’s daughter Juliet was born hours later, and when the parents found out about the naming coincidence.

Both sets of parents allowed photographer Cassie Clayshulte to photograph the babies next to each other in their hospital bassinets, Today.com reported.

Clayshulte posted the photos on her Facebook page and they went viral, which led to another photo shoot of the babies, this time with a Shakespeare theme.

“Typically, it’s really hard to do a shoot like this with newborns that aren’t twins,” Clayshulte said to Today. “(They) loved being snuggled up and they even held hands,” she went on.

Since the babies have been born, the parents have become friends and are talking about getting together every year to take new pictures. “We have found an amazing friendship within Juliet’s family,” Today reported.

Twitter could not get enough of these adorable bundles of joy.
