Woman gives birth to twins in different years

new-years-twins2_635x250_1388622150As people around the world partied their way into the new year, two mothers gave birth to two of the last babies of 2013 and two of the first babies of 2014. While born just minutes apart, their twin babies entered the world in two different years.

On Dec. 31, 2013, at 11:58 p.m., Yaleni Santos Tohalino gave birth to baby girl Lorraine Yaleni Begazo at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, in Washington, D.C. Soon after, her twin brother Brandon Ferdinando Begazo was born on Jan. 1, 2014, at 12:01 a.m.

“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, older sister Gabriela Salgueiro was born on Dec. 31, 2013, at 11:52 p.m. On Jan. 1, 2014, at 12:00:38 a.m., younger twin Sophia Salgueiro was born, weighing 5 pounds, 13 ounces.

“They kind of got that golden ticket. They’ve got different birthdays,” the twins’ mother, Lindsay Salgueiro, told ABCNews.com. “They’re going to be best friends for life.”

“We really did celebrate New Year’s Eve,” Begazo said.

“Not a bad way to end the year and not a bad a way to start the year off,” said Salgueiro.

Both the mothers and babies are healthy and looking forward to going home.

    Try this phenomenon on a February 28 and 29. I wonder how the one of 29 would get to celebrate in a non-Leap Year.
