San Diego Twins Born in Different Years: New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day
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.
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.
