New Years twins born in different years

Kern County Twins Born in Different Years as First Babies of 2018 Arrive

The second twin, a girl, was born 12:16 a.m. Monday, weighing in at 4 pounds 10 ounces, and about 16 inches.

Aitana was also the first baby born at the hospital in 2018, and per hospital tradition the family was gifted $3,000 in baby supplies that will now be used for two.

The parents say the babies were about a month early. However, at 7 p.m. EST on New Year's Eve, their mother Maria went into premature labor.

But these twins are going to miss out on both as they were born in different years, months and days; even though they are just twenty minutes apart.

Aitana was subsequently born at 12.16am on January 1 at the Delano Regional Medical Centre.

Her original due date was January 17, with a c-section scheduled for Jan 10.

It appears the first baby born in Kern County was in Delano.

Nonetheless, not many will be able to empathise with being born in an entirely new year.

Identical twins are known to be born at a rate of nearly four per 1000 births across the globe but few of these births turn out to be special. "But then it turned out Maria was in labour, which was a surprise".

"I've been doing this for 35 years, and I've never had this before", said Dr. Seyed Tamjidi, who delivered the set of twins in two different years.
