  • Did the video say that the dr scheduled the c-section on purpose like that?! I thought it was amazing until I heard that part.

  • So it was a publicity stunt? What Dr schedules a c-section at MN on a Friday, holiday night?

  • The thing is, this occurrence is not that unusual, especially in these days of designer, multiple babies, IVF and built in families. Twins are often born 10-20 minutes apart.

    yep and it's not the first time twins have been born in different years either. It is interesting though

  • She says it was a choice she was offered to give her twins distinctive birthdays.

    I have twin nieces. They are identical. Anything we can do to make things individualized for them we do. Just because they share an ovum and sperm and shared a womb and share a birthday (and happed to be each other's very best friend, too) doesn't mean that they are the same person. It's sometimes tough to choose things (like Christmas presents) that are separate but equal for them.

    So they planned this. So the doc was willing to do a c-section at midnight on NYE. So it gets her a spot on the news for a day or two. Her kids have their own birthdays -- it's one less thing that they as twins will have to share for the rest of their lives. Good for her.

  • I actually know twins that were born in different months and one only has a birthday every 4 years and the other has a birthday every year.
