Twins born in different years, only minutes apart

Aitana de Jesus and her twin brother Joaquin Ontiveros were born in different years

Newborn Joaquin Ontiveros was born at 11:58 p.m. on New Years Eve, while his sister, Aitana de Jesus, (pictured) was born in the next year at 12:16 a.m. The second twin, a girl, was born 12:16 a.m Monday.

Doctors say the baby girl was slightly breached, so she had to be delivered via caesarean section.

The hospital wrote on Facebook that it was "honored to play a significant role in this 2018 New Year delivery of baby twins" and thanked the "dedicated" hospital staff.

These babies actually came early.

Newborn twins in California have different birthday years. She was believed to be the first baby born in the year 2018 in Kern County, California, according to ABC15. Maria Rios was originally due on January 27. The babies were born healthy and hassle-free, with the only wow-factor about their birth being the timing. While the duo will share everything for life including genes, their date as well as year of birth will remain different.


The twins have been gifted over $3,000 of baby supplies by Delano Regional Medical Centre.

A twist of fate meant that both of them arrived in the world 20 minutes apart but in different years.

It was therefore quite a shock when she went into labour on New Year's Eve.

"I feel really happy because I just had my two babies", Rios, the twins' mother, said.

According to the Daily Mail, which also picked up on the Delano twins, there were four of them in the USA previous year.
