Twins alone are somewhat uncommon, accounting for about 1 in 30 births in the United States – or 3.3 percent in 2010. But having twins born in two different years is just downright bizarre. This year, while billions of people were celebrating the New Year, two sets of twins were born, with the siblings entering the world in both 2013 and 2104!
On Dec. 31, 2013, at 11:58 p.m., Yaleni Santos Tohalino gave birth to baby girl Lorraine Yaleni Begazo, who weighed at 6 pounds, 4.9 ounces, at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, in Washington, D.C.
Not long after, her twin brother Brandon Ferdinando Begazo was born on Jan. 1, 2014, at 12:01 a.m., weighing at 5 pounds, 10.4 ounces.
“I feel wonderful full of joy and happiness and a full sense of realization,” the twins’ father, Warren Begazo, told ABCNews.com. “This is her first children ever, and they’re beautiful and she’s really happy.”
In Toronto, two fraternal twin sisters were also born in 2013 and in 2014, respectively. At Trillium Health Partners-Credit Valley Hospital, Gabriela Salgueiro was born on Dec. 31, 2013, at 11:52 p.m., weighing 6 pounds, 16 ounces.
On Jan. 1, 2014, at 12:00:38 a.m., her younger twin Sophia Salgueiro was born, weighing 5 pounds, 13 ounces.
“Not a bad way to end the year and not a bad a way to start the year off,” said Salgueiro.
Both mothers and babies are healthy and looking forward to going home, their families now a little bigger.
