Lifelong friends in Hawaii discover they're also brothers in 'a Christmas miracle'

Two men in Hawaii, who've been friends for 60 years, celebrated the holidays early on Saturday after telling their families that they were also brothers, KHON2 reported.

Alan Robinson and Walter Macfarlane, who were born 15 months apart, have reportedly known each other since they were in 6th grade and grew up with somewhat similar backgrounds. Robinson was adopted and Macfarlane was never told who his father was, the outlet said.

So when Macfarlane, with the help of his family, decided to research his lineage, they uncovered a truly unexpected surprise.

His daughter, Cindy, told KHON2 that someone with the username Robi737 kept popping up in his DNA matches on and the information showed that they had the same X chromosome. And to make the results even more convincing, the recurring username was reportedly related to Robinson.
