Going into 2022, there are twins born on different days, different months and different years.
But only fifteen minutes apart when their mother gave birth to them.
This is the case of twins in California, USA.
The boy was born in 2021.
Baby girl born in 2022.
In the Philippines, we are extremely surprised and happy when a baby is born on New Year’s Eve.
What about twins with different birth years?
The twins were born at Natividad Medical Center in Salinas, California.
In the hospital’s Facebook post on January 2, 2022, it was mentioned that twins with different birth years are not uncommon.
“Twins with different birthdays are rare and some estimates the probability of having twins in different years is 1 in 2 million,” reads part of the post.
The boy – Alfredo Antonio Trujillo – was born around 11:45 pm on December 31, 2021.
After fifteen minutes, at precisely 12 p.m., on January 1, 2022, a baby girl, Aylin Yolanda Trujillo, was born, “the first born at Natividad Medical Center and in Monterey County in 2016. 2022”, according to a post by Natividad Medical Center.
Aylin weighs 5 pounds and 14 ounces, while Alfredo weighs 6 pounds and 1 ounce.
The mother of twins Fatima Madrigal is unbelievable but full of joy.
“It’s crazy that they are twins and have different birth dates. I was surprised and happy when she arrived at midnight,” Fatima said in the medical center’s Facebook post.
The twins’ father is Robert Trujillo.
Fatima and Robert had three more children, the oldest being a boy and then two girls. They live in Greenfield, California.
Fatima also said that their eldest child is very excited, especially since one of the twins is also a boy.
It was an unforgettable experience for Dr. Ana Abril Arias, who helped with the birth of the baby.
“This is definitely one of the most memorable births of my career,” said the GP at the hospital.
“It has been an absolute pleasure helping these little ones get here safely in 2021 and 2022. What a great way to start the New Year!”
