The wives of two childhood best friends have delivered babies on the same day in the same hospital.
According to an interview with Because of Them We Can, Malek Lee and Demetrius Gower became friends since the 7th grade and have since remained the closest of friends.
Demetrius said it was even a surprise that they both did not share information about their wives' pregnancies with each other in time.
Months after both Malek and Demetrius' wives got pregnant, each one decided to disclose the information only to realize the other was in the same situation.
At the time they shared the information, they inquired from each other and realized the two women would give birth about two weeks apart.
Going forward, the developmental stages started to coincide more and more. The day Demetrius' wife had her first dilation was the same day he discovered that Malek's partner also did the same.
In what Demetrius has come to accept as 'God's plan', the two pregnant women ended up in the same hospital and were delivered of their babies on the same day.
Demetrius said it pleases him so much that their sons are about to experience the same kind of bond he has shared with his best friend Malek Lee.
