Aylin arrived 15 minutes after her brother Alfredo, who was born the year before on December 31st at 11:45pm, weighing 6 pounds and 1 ounce. 

Their birth is special because they were born on different days, months and years… but they’re twins! 

Apparently, twins with different birthdays are rare and some estimate the chance of twins being born in different years as one in 2 million.

The twins were born at Natividad Hospital in Salinas.

How… cool!
