Watch These Newborn Preemie Twins Do Something Incredible in Their Father’s Arms

These twins prove you’re never too young for a little human connection and sibling love.

Kristian Ian Rushford and Kristiana Micaela Rushford were born 11 weeks premature in Melbourne, Australia, to Anthea Jackson-Rushford and her husband Glen, the Daily Mail reported. They only weighted about 2 pounds each but the two formed an immediate bond.

Recently, Jackson-Rushford caught a beautiful moment between the two of them on video — while snuggling against their father’s chest, they held hands.

The video, posted to YouTube earlier this month, has already been viewed nearly 225,000 times. Jackson-Rushford has since also posted a photo of the twins holding hands to her Facebook page.


“He actually holds her hand,” Jackson-Rushford can be heard saying in the video below. “How is that possible? That’s just unbelievable.”

“It’s like he’s going, ‘I’ve got you,’ her husband responds.
