ALL it took was 15 minutes for a set of twins to be born on different days in different years.
Fatima Madrigal and Robert Trujillo welcomed their son, Alfredo, on New Year’s Eve at 11:45pm. His sister, Aylin was born right when the clock hit midnight on New Year’s Day.
Aylin weighed 5 pounds, 14 ounces. and was the first baby born at Natividad Medical Center and in Monterey County in 2022. Her big brother, Alfredo, weighed 6 pounds, 1 ounce.
“It’s crazy to me that they are twins and have different birthdays,” said Madrigal in a press release from the medical center in California.
“I was surprised and happy that she arrived at midnight.”
Dr. Ana Abril Arias, a family doctor at the center, called the twins’ birth “one of the most memorable deliveries of my career.”
“It was an absolute pleasure to help these little ones arrive here safely in 2021 and 2022,” she said. “What an amazing way to start the New Year!”
There are about 120,000 twin births in the US each year, making up over 3 percent of all births, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
