ST. LOUIS, Mo. — They’re a bundle of babies and a number of reasons to be happy for these twin sisters. It doesn’t take double vision to see the unique occurrence in West County at Mercy hospital.

When fraternal twin sisters Lisa Boyce and Lauren Kozelichki learned they were both pregnant they did not suspect that they would deliver on the same day.

“She announced to me, and told me, and we were all so excited,’ says Lauren Kozelichki. “Then a short week later I ended up finding out I was pregnant. So we announced to her after she told us.”

For the last few months, the sisters celebrated their big news.

“So our original due dates were ten days apart,” said Lisa Boyce.

The numbers looked like they wouldn`t align for these sisters hoping to have babies at the same time.

“So, I went in on Tuesday and labored for a couple of days and ended up with a C section on the 7th at 1:30 in the morning,” says Boyce. “Lauren had a scheduled C-section that day because they don’t let twins go past 38 weeks.”

“But being a twin I always thought I had a little advantage of raising twins,” says Kozelichki. “Which was awesome. I never dreamed ever that they would all be born on the exact same day.”

That day, November seventh or 11-7. Thankfully there were almost ten hours between the births. The twins had the same doctor at Mercy Hospital.

“My soccer number was always five and hers was always seven,’ says Kozelichki. “So she was supposed to have him on the fifth and I on the seventh. But they all three came on the seventh. So seven is going to be their lucky number.”

“We had no idea. It was that big of a deal until after we both had delivered,” says Boyce. “Then a lot of the nurses said, ‘We’ve never had this happen before. On the same day, with the same doctor, with twins having a twin.’ So I guess that was pretty awesome.”

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage.
