These Amazing Preemie Twins are Going Viral Anthea Jackson-Rushford/Facebook

A video of premature twins has earned over 70,000 shares on Facebook—and when you see it, you'll absolutely understand why.

Anthea Jackson-Rushford shared the video in question. It features her infant twins, Kristiana and Kristian, who were born at just over 28 weeks gestation. Though the twins weighed in at just over two pounds each, the sight of them is nothing short of inspirational.

In the video, the twins are lying on their father's chest, nestled underneath a blanket and pressed up against his skin. One baby is hooked up to a series of monitors and they're both absolutely gorgeous.

But the most amazing thing about the whole video isn't how tiny or cute these babies are—it's in the fact that they're holding hands.
