More than friends: Buddies for 60 years find out they're long-lost brothers

Robinson and Macfarlane recently made the shocking discovery after taking a DNA test through family history website

Robinson was adopted by his family, while Macfarlane never knew his father, another local television station in Hawaii, KHON 2 reported. Born in Hawaii 15 months apart, they met in the sixth grade and played football together at a Honolulu prep school.

At this time of year, Christmas shopping lists occupy the minds of family members across the country, and we all try to find our loved ones that "perfect gift".

"As it should be, you're my younger brother", Macfarlane said.

Robinson (right) and Macfarlane (left) recently made the shocking discovery after taking a DNA test through family history website Ancestry.com.

It turns out they had one other thing in common-later in life, they both used DNA testing kits to search for their biological relatives.

"It really is a Christmas miracle and we're just so happy that we found it", Macfarlane agreed.

The results of the test from Ancestry.com revealed that Macfarlane had a genetic similarity with another user on the site with the name "Robi737".

Here's where Robinson comes in.

Landon Collins says he met with Eli Apple, apologized for 'cancer' remark
NY went to the playoffs last season, but 2017 has been a nightmare for the Giants. The following day, Apple denied that the conversations ever occurred.

Knowing that his lifelong friend was nicknamed "Robby" - and knowing also that he had flown 737 planes for commercial airlines - Macfarlane called Robinson to ask some questions, and soon discovered they had the same birth mother. They later learned they have the same birth mother.

"It was a shock!" said Macfarlane.

Mr Robinson added: "Yeah it was shock, definitely, and then we thought about it and compared forearms".

'Yea hairy arms, that did it!' Macfarlane shouted.

The new (ish) brothers broke the news to friends and family on Saturday.

"It was an overwhelming experience, it's still overwhelming".

"This is the best Christmas present I could ever imagine having". "I don't know how long it's going to take for me to get over this feeling", Robinson said, according to KHON2.

The pair are now planning to enjoy retirement together as brothers.
