Twins Born Different Years: One in 2017, One in 2018

Twins Born Different Years: One in 2017, One in 2018

The second twin, a girl, was born 12:16 a.m. Monday, weighing in at 4 pounds 10 ounces, and about 16 inches. Doctors say the girl was slightly breached, so she had to be delivered via caesarean section.

Aitana was also the first baby born at the hospital in 2018, and per hospital tradition the family was gifted $3,000 in baby supplies that will now be used for two.

The new parents said their New Year's babies were born about a month early after being originally due on January 27 but they had a C-section scheduled for January 10, KERO reported. Perhaps what's most interesting is not just that the twins were born in different years, but of course they have different birthdays.

When Maria Esperanza Flores Rios went into labour on New Year's Eve at 7pm, she probably wasn't expecting the surprise that was coming her way.

Joaquin and Aitana de Jesus Ontiveros were both due to arrive January 27, 2018.

It appears the first baby born in Kern County was in Delano.

Although the brother and sister might not have exactly the same birth date, we're that spending about 9 months in the womb together trumps the few minutes they spent apart. Neither day, nor month, and not the year either, for sure!

A slight rarity in Delano as twins were born in different years.
