Some teammates really do everything together.

Two members of the Cincinnati Bengals each welcomed a newborn baby last week – but there is much more to it.

The wives of Evan McPherson and Logan Wilson both gave birth to a daughter on Friday at the same hospital.

The NFL’s official Instagram account shared a photo of the couples with their new babies.

“Can finally share the birthday twins,” a caption on the photo read.

Baby girl and her mom rocked it in the hospital and we are so happy to be home!” McPherson wrote in a separate Instagram post on Monday. “Her brothers are already obsessed with her!! We all love you so much Merritt Hayes!”

Wilson’s wife, Morgan, revealed in a post that her daughter was born a few days early – her due date was March 20.

The couples were also married on the same day: July 9, 2022, notes the New York Post.

Both babies are the couples’ firstborn.

McPherson has become one of the game’s best kickers – he has knocked 83.9% of his field goals in his three-year career, even helping the Bengals to the Super Bowl in his rookie year after his walk-off kick against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Wilson, a fourth-year linebacker, had a career-high 135 tackles this past season.

Cincinnati did not make the playoffs, largely in part due to Joe Burrow’s season-ending hand injury in a tough AFC North – every team in the division finished above .500, with the Bengals’ 9-8 record being the worst mark. The other three teams in the division all made the playoffs.
