Twins born in different years: Sisters spared sharing same birthday

Twins born in different years are sisters spared sharing the same birthday. Two babies in Washington, D.C. were delivered eight minutes apart with one arriving New Year's Eve at 11:52 p.m. Dec. 31 and the other right after 2014 rang in Jan. 1.

ABC News reported Jan. 3. that Gabriela and Sophia do not share the same date, month, or year for being twins.

“It was like, oh my gosh, it’s a New Year baby…” mother, Lindsay Salgueiro, said. “One was born in 2013, Gabby ended up being the last one of the year and Sophia ended up being the first.”

Salgueiro's obstetrician, Dr. John Smith, said it is not too uncommon for twins to be born on separate dates or months, but it is rare for them to deliver in different years!

“It’s the first time I’ve ever heard of it or been aware of it," Dr. Smith said, "Ironically, I was joking with this lady a couple of days before in the clinic, ‘oh, they’ll be born in different years’ and then when i heard it on the radio…”

Especially for girls, sharing a birthday with a sibling, parent, or other family member is not so great. These twins born in different years can share a wonderful bond, yet still have separate birthdays!
