“It’s crazy to me that they are twins and have different birthdays,” said Madrigal in a press release announcing the rare birth. “I was surprised and happy that she arrived at midnight.”
Aylin weighed 5 lbs., 14 oz., and Alfredo weighed 6 lbs., 1 oz.
What are the odds of a birth like this? Some estimate the chance of twins being born in different years are 1 in 2 million, the press release said.
Dr. Ana Abril Arias, who helped deliver the twins, says the birth was one of the most memorable deliveries of her career.
The fraternal twins have three older siblings who are very excited to meet them, Madrigal said.
