Twins are born in two different years.

Fati­ma Madri­gal and Robert Tru­jil­lo wel­comed their son, Alfre­do, on New Years Eve at 11:45 p.m. Her sis­ter, Aylin was born just as the clock struck mid­night on New Years Day.

Aylin weighed 2.331kg. and was the first baby born at Nativi­dad Med­ical Cen­ter and in Mon­terey Coun­ty in 2022. His old­er broth­er, Alfre­do, weighed 2,767kg.

“It’s crazy to me that they’re twins and have dif­fer­ent birth­days,” Madri­gal said in a press release from the Cal­i­for­nia Med­ical Center.

“I was sur­prised and hap­py that she arrived at midnight.”

Dr Ana Abril Arias, fam­i­ly doc­tor at the cen­ter, called the birth of twins “one of the most mem­o­rable deliv­er­ies of my career”.

“It was an absolute plea­sure help­ing these lit­tle ones to get here safe­ly in 2021 and 2022,” she said. “What an amaz­ing way to start the New Year! ”

There are approx­i­mate­ly 120,000 births of twins in the Unit­ed States each year, rep­re­sent­ing more than 3% of all births, accord­ing to the Cen­ters for Dis­ease Control.

How­ev­er, twins with dif­fer­ent birth­days are even rar­er, with an esti­mat­ed chance of one in 2 million.

Dawn Gilliam and Jason Tel­lo wel­comed twins Joslyn and Jax­son. Joslyn was born on Decem­ber 31, 2019 at 11:37 p.m. Her broth­er was born 30 min­utes lat­er at 12:07 am on Jan­u­ary 1, 2020.

At the time, Gilliam said she was “in shock”.

Mean­while, the Madri­gal twins will be wel­comed home by their three old­er sib­lings, two daugh­ters and a boy.

Madri­gal said his eldest son was delight­ed that one of the babies was a boy. She says her fam­i­ly were eager to meet them.
