Every woman has a friend who’s as close as a sister, but what if you found out that one of your friends actually was your sister?
Two freshman at Tulane university had a burgeoning friendship when they discovered a series of coincidences and similarities that became too numerous to ignore.
Two weeks ago, on January 7, Mikayla Stern-Ellis and Emily Nappi discovered they had been conceived using the same Colombian donor at California Cryobank.
They went from meeting on Facebook after getting accepted to the school to discovering their father was the same donor.
Nappi says both girls noticed they had a lot in common but "We just thought it was a joke until Winter break." That's when she says her mom felt there was too much coincidence.
Nappi says her mom read her the donor number and when she passed that information onto her friend the discovery was made.
"We always thought we looked exactly like our moms, but we look exactly like each other," Nappi says.
Both girls grew up in different parts of California but they are only seven months apart in age.
Emily says Tulane was her number one college choice but Stern-Ellis says she feels fate drew her there.
"I got a free application one day," she says. "There's no particular reason I chose Tulane, I just felt like I needed to go there."
It's just a bad photo – in the video they are both very pretty. Geez, Bubba, we can't all be perfect like you.
Oh that is just soo sweet how that could happen.
That is so cool!
Well their father sure didnt give them any attractiveness genes.
thats mean and i think you should keep your comments to your selves, because not was that just mean it was rude
Well their father sure didnt give them an attractiveness genes.
Expect more of this going forward. Only next time it will be the brother and sister who are dating and fall in love then find out they have the same father.
