No Forbidden Union Here: Romeo and Juliette Babies Make Debut at Florida Hospital

“What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” 

For two sets of new parents, a Shakespearean connection was what was in the names they chose for their newborns!

Baby Juliette Crouch was born Friday morning at Leesburg Regional Medical Center. Hours later, Romeo Kidd made his debut down the hallway.

Hospital privacy laws almost kept the drama from playing out. A nurse asked Carolyn Kidd her baby's name and said a Juliette was born the same day. But she couldn't tell them where Juliette's parents were. 

Still, the two families began searching for each other. Dad Justin Crouch says he thought about walking down the hall saying, "Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo."

The families finally got together, shared laughs and exchanged contact information unlike in "Romeo & Juliet" where the families were mortal enemies.
