NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) -

Newport Aquarium announced Wednesday that their two female shark rays are both pregnant!

Sweet Pea and Sunshine are both expecting.

This is the second and third cases of shark rays breeding under professional animal care in the world.

You can see video of experts performing ultrasounds here.

The sharks' due dates are within 2 or 3 months of each other.

You can still see Sweet Pea and Sunshine in the Sharks exhibit for now until they get closer to their due dates, at which point they will be moved to Newport Aquarium’s off-site animal health facility in Northern Kentucky.
