INTERESTING: How Mom Welcomed a Set of Twins in Two Different Years

A set of Californian twins were born in two different years after their mum reportedly went into labour on New Year’s Eve at 7 p.m.

Maria Esperanza Flores Rios delivered Joaquin Ontiveros on December 31, at the Delano Regional Medical Center in California’s Kern County, while she and her husband Joaquin suspected that there was a possibility that their twins would be celebrating separate birthdays.

The second baby, Aitana de Jesus, had to wait till January 1 before she came out. So an 18 minutes gap between the two babies mean they will bear two different birth years, ABC News today reports.

The baby boy was born at 11:58 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2017, and weighed in at 5 pounds, 9 ounces and was 18 inches long, ABC station KABC reported. His younger sister was born at 12:16 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2018, at 4 pounds, 10 ounces and 16 inches long.

It was reported that Maria was originally due on January 27 and then was scheduled for a caesarean on January 10. It therefore came as shock when she went into labour on New Year’s Eve.

Maria finally welcomed her twins via C-section nearly 4 weeks early.

The hospital wrote on Facebook that it was “honored to play a significant role in this 2018 New Year delivery of baby twins” and thanked the “dedicated” hospital staff.

Maria, 39, and her husband, both farm labourers, reportedly have three other daughters ranging in ages from 18 years old to six.
According to Louise Firth Campbell and Amram Shapiro, co-authors of The Book of Odds, the odds of twins being born in different years are around one in 60,000.
So Big brother was born in 2017, while little sister was born in 2018! Both babies were said to have been born safely and soundly and have already achieved global fame only a day after entering the world.
