Romeo And Juliet Babies Born Hours Apart In The Same Hospital Reunite For A Shakespearean Photo Shoot

Two babies named Romeo and Juliet, who were born just hours apart at Coastal Carolina Hospital in Hardeeville, South Carolina, on March 19, reunited for a photo shoot with a Shakespearean theme!

The hospital’s resident photographer, Cassie Clayshulte, who was the first person to realize the amazing coincidence and snap a shot of the star-crossed newborns, asked the parents of both babies if they could come together for a second time.

“The photo shoot was so much fun for all four of us parents! The theme was Cassie’s idea, and it was so much fun to watch her creativity flow and to watch her work her magic,” Romeo’s mom, Morgan Hernandez, said. “We were all sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ by how well Romeo and Juliet cooperated and snuggled for these adorable photos.”

Morgan and Edwin Hernandez welcomed Romeo just 18 hours before Christiana and Allan Shifflett welcomed Juliet.

While Clayshulte was talking to Romeo’s parents about doing a photo shoot after their son’s birth, she quickly left the room and ran to the nurses’ station to double check another patient’s name.

It was then that she confirmed that a baby girl named Juliet had been born just hours before.

Morgan says that Clayshulte was originally worried that the photo shoot might cause some ɴᴇɢᴀᴛɪᴠɪᴛʏ because of the ominous ending of Romeo and Juliet.

“But both Christiana and I didn’t care about other people’s opinions, and we were all very happy with the outcome of the photos,” she said. “My husband, Edwin, and I have said multiple times to each other how crazy it is because we are just normal people who have picked a unique name for our son.”

Juliet’s mother, Christiana Shifflett, also loves the precious moments Clayshulte captured.

“It’s been a little overwhelming with how viral the story went, but an overall good experience. We’ve made new friends, Romeo’s parents and Cassie, our photographer, have some amazing newborn photos and have a funny story to tell Juliet when she’s older,” she said.
