Twins born minutes apart on New Year’s Eve arrive in different years

Twins born fifteen minutes apart on New Year’s Eve will now celebrate separate birthdays after being born in different years.

Aylin and Alfredo Trujillo of Salinas California were delivered at Natividad Medical Centre, with Aylin arriving at midnight on 1st January 2022.

Her brother Alfredo was born on 31st December 2021 at 11:45pm.

A rare occurrence

As of 2019, twin births in the US only made up around 3 per cent of total births nationwide (120,000).

The chances of twins being born on different days, months and years is even lower, meaning Aylin and Alfredo’s birth made news worldwide.

Their mother, Fatima Madrigal, said: “It’s crazy to me that they have different birthdays.

“I was surprised and happy that Aylin arrived at midnight.

Ana Abril Arias, a family doctor at Natividad medical group, said: “It was an absolute pleasure to help these little ones arrive here safely in 2021 and 2022.

“It was definitely one of the most memorable deliveries of my career.”
