  • Lol...I went to school with two girls who were siblings and close enough to the same age that they were both in my class. Everyone thought they were twins, but they were like 9 1/2 months apart.

  • That's two different women so it souldn't count. I knew a boy who had twin brothers 8 months younger than him. The twins were premature. They were like triplets.

  • I'm not sure of the closest I know of - but my MIL has 3 other sibling, together their ages are 41, 42, 43 and 44. Those were some closely spaces kids.

  • well when it comes to different moms, i knew someone who got two girls pregnant in a matter of days, the kids ended up being 6 hours and 24 mins apart! but thats different moms so don't see it as counting there. with the same sets of parents (or same mom) the smallest gap i know of is 10 months.

  • We have 2 half-siblings in our family who are 6 weeks apart. There was a whole lot of blame to go around at that divorce hearing.

  • Yeah, about 9.5 months. My older brother is 15 months older than me and my mom thought that was too close.
