FREMONT, Mich. — It was Labor Day weekend when Matt and Nicole Ziesemer received the news that would change their life.

"This was my first pregnancy, and it was all new to me," Nicole said.

The couple wanted a natural birth.

"We decided not to do an ultrasound, just as little intervention as possible," Matt said.

At 10:06 p.m. on Dec. 30, 2017, Blakeley Faith Ziesemer was born at Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial Hospital in Fremont, Mich.

"It was unbelievable, there is not a moment like it," Matt said.

But when their doctor, Megan Forshee, went to check Nicole, she found something unexpected. 

"I reached in to check the patient and realized there was a head," Forshee said.

"We thought she was joking and she was like, 'I don't lie about these things'," Nicole said.

Surprise ... a second baby.

"Everyone in the room thought they had seen a ghost," Nicole said. 

And at 11:05 p.m., Cade Matthew Ziesemer was born.

"I definitely will not forget this couple or these two babies," Forshee said. 

"My first thought after delivering the second baby, 'oh crap!' we need a second crib, a second car seat, a second everything," Nicole recalled.
