Brittany and Briana Deane, met their husbands, Josh and Jeremy Slayers, in 2017 at a festival for twins. After the two American couples met, the Slayers brothers proposed and in August 2018 and the siblings tied the knot to the twin brothers in a themed 'Twice Upon a Time' ceremony at a Twins Day Festival in Twinsburg.

The 33-year-old sisters have always had plans to marry a set of twin brothers and luckily their husbands had the same in mind. “It’s really been a fairy tale come true. Marrying twins is something that’s very important to us. Even when we were little girls I can remember being in kindergarten, knowing that that's what we saw for ourselves,” Briana says.

The identical twin sisters who have shared every milestone, including birthdays, graduation and their special day, live together under the same roof with their husbands.

In May 2019, they took to the Australian breakfast Today Show to announce that they are hoping to start their families together and this would be achieved by synchronising their pregnancies. “I think there's just something we would love to experience together. We have experienced most milestones of our lives together, birthdays, getting your driver's licence, graduations, and our double wedding. This would be the next huge event, and we'd love to experience it together, and ideally we will,” Brittany said.

A year later, the Virginia couples made an announcement on their Instagram page with the caption: “Guess what!!?? BOTH couples are pregnant! We are thrilled and grateful to experience overlapping pregnancies and to share this news with you all! Our children will not only be cousins, but full genetic siblings and quaternary multiples! Can't wait to meet them and for them to meet each other!” Their followers flooded the comments section with congratulatory messages and questions with one saying, “Congrats!! What are the chances that you both have twins? Are they a bit higher?” and another suggesting the sisters need a reality show, “Congratulations!! As a twin myself I knew the genetic sibling fact. Now you need a TV show!”
