These twins were born on the same night, but have different birthdays
A pair of San Diego twins were born in different years. That’s because girl Jaclyn Valencia was born at 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2015, where as her brother, Luis Valencia Jr., was born at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2016.
Twins share a lot of things in common — their looks, personality traits and, in most cases, their birthdays.
But for a pair of San Diego twins, this isn't the case.
As KGTV San Diego reported, a pair of twins born over New Year's Eve have completely different birthdays. That's because girl Jaelyn Valencia was born at 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2015, where as her brother, Luis Valencia Jr., was born at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2016.
This was an even more surprising birth since the Valencia's didn't know they were having twins, KGTV reported.
"It was around midnight and she was just popping out. It was crazy seeing her little head pop out first," the father, Luis Valencia, told KGTV. "I was not really expecting two, so it's a big blessing to have two of them, boy and a girl for New Years."
Of course, these twins aren't the only ones born without the same birthday. In fact, back in October 2015, a Washington state couple saw their first baby born in September, where as their second baby was born months later. This was because of a rare condition called "twin to twin" syndrome, in which one twin draws the blood from another, leaving one of the twins sick and "weakened without enough blood supply," delaying the twin's birth, ABC News reported.
