Twins born either side of the Scottish border are to be brought up as Sunderland Football Club supporters.
Though the babies were born in different countries, parents Donna Keenan and Joe Fox are determined they will support the same team.
The couple were suprised by the early birth of their first son Dylan, who arrived at Mr Fox's mother's house before midwives could get there.
Miss Keenan was then whisked up from Wooler to the nearest maternity unit in Scotland to give birth to Dylan's twin sister Hannah.
Despite fears of the baby being delivered on the roadside, and an hour-long journey with a travel sick midwife, the couple made it to hospital in time.
Mr Fox, who is from Sunderland said: "They'll definitely be Sunderland supporters.
"Of course they can make their own minds up when they're older, but there's no harm in a bit of gentle persuasion.
As soon as the twins are old enough they will be attending Sunderland football matches.
Mr Fox added: "I just can't wait to take them to their first game."
