Twins in California were born just 15 minutes apart, but their birthdays are on separate days, months and years.
Alfredo Antonio Trujillo was delivered first at 11:45 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, and his sister Aylin Yolanda Trujillo was born exactly at midnight on New Year’s Day.
Aylin was the first baby born at Natividad Medical Center and in Monterey County, according to a news release by Natividad. The fraternal twins join three older siblings in the Trujillo family, two girls and a boy. Madrigal said her oldest son was excited that one of the babies was a boy, and her family can’t wait to meet them.
Aylin weighed in at 5 pounds, 14 ounces, while big brother Alfredo weighed 6 pounds, 1 ounce.
Though the incident is rare, it’s not the first time twins have been born in separate years.
“It’s crazy to me that they are twins and have different birthdays,” their mother, Fatima Madrigal, said. “I was surprised and happy that she arrived at midnight.”
