Twins Born An Extraordinary 87 Days Apart Could Win Guinness World Record

Twins Amy and Katie Jones-Elliott could win a Guinness World Record after they were born 87 days apart.
The babies survived after their 34-year-old mum Maria went into labour four months early, giving birth to Amy on June 1, 2012 while sister Katie was born nearly three months later on August 27. Both girls have since been declared fit and healthy by medical professionals.

Maria, who is from Ireland, called the girls "little miracles" after their recovery. Consultant obstetrician Dr Eddie O'Donnell said that Amy and Katie's successful delivery was the medical equivalent of winning the lottery.
Amy and Katie's miracle births could now win a Guinness World Record for the 'longest interval between the birth of twins'.

Guinness World Records spokesman Damian Field said:"If the claim of 87 days between the birth of the twins is substantiated, they will break the world record."
The current record is held by Peggy Lynn of Pennsylvania, who gave birth to twins 84 days apart.
