In this rare occurrence, not just one, but two sets of twin babies were born in separate years. While others celebrated their New Year’s Eves with fancy dresses and expensive champagne, two mothers had a slightly different experiencing giving birth to two of the last babies of 2013 and two of the first babies of 2014. Born just minutes apart from one another, their twin babies entered the world in two different years.
In Toronto, two fraternal twin sisters were born in separate years, 2013 and 2014, respectively. At Trillium Health Partners-Credit Valley Hospital, Gabriela Salgueiro was born on Dec. 31, 2013, at 11:52 p.m., weighing in at 6 pounds, 16 ounces, becoming the older sister of the pair. On Jan. 1, 2013, at 12:00:38 a.m., younger twin sister 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. Not a bad way to end the year and not a bad way to start the year off.”
Meanwhile in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 31, 2013, at 11:58 p.m., Yaleni Santos Taholino gave birth to a baby girl named Lorraine Yaleni Begazo, who weighed 6 pounds, 4.9 ounces at Medstar Washington Hospital Center.
A few minutes later, 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. We really did celebrate New Year’s Eve.”
Both mothers and sets of twins are happy and healthy, and looking forward to being able to go home. The good news is, these twins being born in separate years will never have to have an argument about sharing the same birthday ever!
