A mother and daughter who became pregnant at the same time each gave birth to baby boys just two weeks apart – and the uncle and nephew are now both due to start school in September.
Melanie Warburton, 44, came home to tell her daughter Keesha, 24 that she was expecting after her six week scan in June 2018 – just as Keesha had taken a pregnancy test which revealed the good news.
The pair from Atherton, Greater Manchester went to appointments together, shopped for baby clothes and even shared a joint baby shower.
Melanie gave birth to her son, Grayson, four – her third child – via C-section on January 15 2019, and Keesha was induced two weeks later on January 29, and had a baby boy; Carter.
Both are now four years old.

‘I came down the stairs with a pregnancy test in my hand and there was my mum with a scan in her hand,’ Keesha, a trainee teaching assistant said of the experience.
‘I came down with a pregnancy test and mum was like “I can’t have anything for myself”,’ she joked.
‘It was bonkers but amazing to go through pregnancy and giving birth with her.’
Melanie, 44, a stay-at-home mother also called the experience ‘wonderful’.
The mother-of-three had been trying for a baby with her husband William Warburton, 36 – Keesha’s stepfather, a health and safety specialist – after getting her tubes untied.
‘Because of the hormones we both had we did rip into each other a few times,’ she admitted.
Keesha, who had suffered a stillbirth before, also stressed the importance of having her mother’s guidance during this time as Melanie ‘reassured her every step of the way’.
‘It was amazing having my mum telling me everything was normal or ok,’ she added.

Keesha says it was ‘incredible’ albeit ‘a little bit bonkers’ to get a son (pictured right) and little brother (pictured left) at the same time
‘She’d feel the baby move and then two weeks later I would.
‘We just went through everything together. To get a little brother and have my own son at the same time was incredible.
‘A little bit bonkers but just amazing.’
Keesha – who has been with partner, Callum Pearson, 23, a stay-at-home dad, for six years is also excited to see both her son and little brother take the next big step together.
Although officially ‘uncle’ and ‘nephew’, the pair say their boys are like ‘brothers’.
