Times Two: When both moms are pregnant simultaneously


Hour 2

One’s a rock star, bassist for the all-female band Antigone Rising. The other’s the VP of Real Simple Magazine. When KRISTEN HENDERSON and SARAH KATE ELLIS fell in love and decided to start a family, they joined the approximately 1 million same-sex families raising 2 million kids in the United States. But after Sarah struggled to get and stay pregnant, they eventually opted to try at the same time. Sure enough, they both got pregnant on the same day, and gave birth to kids just days apart, kids they call “the twins.” Together, Kristen and Sarah wrote a new book, Times Two: Two Women in Love and the Happy Family They Made, and they’re our guests on today’s Radio Times.
