Two families experienced a heartwarming coincidence when their newborns, named after country music legends June Carter and Johnny Cash, were born on the same day.

Sophie Clark and Nicole Davis, the mothers of June and Johnny, shared their remarkable story in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE.

Sophie Clark and Nicole Davis both delivered their babies on April 10 at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children in Alabama. Sophie gave birth to her daughter, June Carter Clark, at 2:30 p.m. On the same night, at 9:50 p.m., Nicole and her husband welcomed their son Johnny Cash Davis.

Clark shared that they decided on the name June Carter because they found “June” to be beautiful and wanted a meaningful middle name. Choosing her husband’s first name, Carter, they settled on June Carter for their daughter.

She said that shortly after she gave birth to June, her husband’s uncle ran into baby Johnny’s dad in the elevator. When he mentioned that they had named their baby June Carter, the other dad revealed they had just welcomed a baby named Johnny Cash.

“My uncle told him we had a baby named June Carter, and he said they had actually just had a baby named Johnny Cash.”

Excited by the unexpected connection, Clark immediately asked the nurses to help arrange a meeting between the families.

“I was so excited and couldn’t believe it! I told my husband, ‘I’m going to find that baby,’ ” she added.

Realizing the special connection between their babies, both families felt it was only fitting to capture the moment with a joint photo in the hospital. The nurses facilitated the meeting, bringing baby Johnny Cash to lay alongside his “little soulmate,” June Carter.

The families ended up staying connected on Facebook even after leaving the hospital. Their bond grew so strong that they arranged for another photoshoot, ensuring that June and Johnny could continue creating memories together.

This time, they opted for a professional session. Dressed in costumes reminiscent of their namesakes, Johnny Cash and June Carter, the adorable pair stole the spotlight once again.
