California twins were born 15 minutes apart but in different years, with one arriving a minute before midnight on New Year’s Eve 2021 and the other coming at precisely midnight on New Year’s Day 2022.
On Sunday, the Natividad Medical Center reported that Fatima Madrigal gave birth to baby Alfredo Antonio Trujillo at 11:45 p.m. on Saturday.
Alfredo’s sister Aylin Yolanda Trujillo was born precisely at midnight in a new year with a different birthday only 15 minutes later.
According to People, Aylin weighed 5 lbs. 14 oz., while big brother Alfredo weighed 6 lbs. 1 oz.
In a press release acquired by People, Madrigal said, “It’s odd to me that they’re twins and have different birthdays.” “She arrived at midnight, which astonished and delighted me.”
The births were “one of the most remarkable deliveries of my career,” according to Dr. Ana Abril Arias, a family doctor at the hospital.
In the statement, Arias added, “It was an absolute pleasure to help these tiny ones come here safely in 2021 and 2022.” “What a fantastic way to ring in the New Year!”
When they return home with their mother and father, Robert Trujillo, the two babies will meet their three older siblings, two girls, and a boy.
