Chris and Matt Hicks were expectant fathers. Both mothers went into labor the same day. Matt and his fiancee got to the hospital first. Chris and his wife arrived later but their baby was born first.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep with a sibling rivalry. Chris and Matt Hicks of Kenosha, Wis. were both expectant fathers, the babies expected a week apart. The question was who'd come first. Then, both mothers went into labor on the same day. Matt and fiance Allie Osheim reached the hospital first, in the lead. Chris and Courtney Hicks arrived later, but their baby was born first. Hoping to avoid awkward future family reunions, the Associated Press called it a tie. It's MORNING EDITION.
