Twins Born in Different Years: New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day
One of them can definitely say to the other, “I’m a year older than you”.
A pair of twins were born in different years.
Jaelyn, a girl, was born on December 31 at 11:59 p.m., while her twin brother Luis was born on January 1 at 12:02 a.m., making Jaelyn as one of the last babies born in 2015, and her brother one of the first in 2016!
The twins were born at the San Diego Kaiser Permanente Zion Medical Center in California, according to this local report.
The twins’ mother, Maribel Valencia, was reportedly scheduled to have a caesarean section on January 6, but the babies came earlier than expected.
Looks like this family is going to have to celebrate two birthdays!
The babies were born at San Diego Kaiser Permanente Zion Medical Center at 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2015, and at 12:02 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2016, respectively.
Twins born in a San Diego hospital will forever share different birthdays: one baby was born in the final minute of New Year’s Eve, while the other debuted in the first minutes of New Year’s Day.
According to staffers at the San Diego Kaiser Permanente Zion Medical Center, the twins – baby girl, Jaelyn, and baby boy, Luis – were born at 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31 and at 12:02 a.m. on Jan. 1, respectively, to mother Maribel Valencia, 22, and her husband, Luis.
Though the twins will be sharing a lot of things over the years, they will certainly not be sharing a birthday.
The hospital said the twins were both 18.5 inches long. Jaelyn weighed four pounds, 15 ounces, while Luis weighed five pounds, nine ounces. Both babies and their mother are healthy and happy.
"We were actually watching the clock. We wanted to see if we were one of the first ones," said Luis.
According to the hospital, the Valencia family lives in San Diego. Maribel works as a cashier at the San Diego International Airport and her husband is a diesel mechanic for the United State Navy. The couple also has another daughter, 3-year-old Isabella.
Luis told that the older sister was surprised and a little shocked about how her siblings came into the world.
The twins’ birth times may mean Jaelyn is the last baby born in 2015 in San Diego County, and Luis is possibly the first baby born in 2016 in San Diego County.
