New Year's Twin Babies Born in Separate Years

As people around the world partied their way into the new year, two mothers gave birth to two of the last babies of 2013 and two of the first babies of 2014. While born just minutes apart, their twin babies entered the world in two different years.

On Dec. 31, 2013, at 11:58 p.m., Yaleni Santos Tohalino gave birth to baby girl Lorraine Yaleni Begazo, who weighed at 6 pounds, 4.9 ounces, at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, in Washington, D.C.

Soon after, her twin brother Brandon Ferdinando Begazo was born on Jan. 1, 2014, at 12:01 a.m., weighing at 5 pounds, 10.4 ounces.

"I feel wonderful full of joy and happiness and a full sense of realization," the twins' father, Warren Begazo, told ABCNews.com. "This is her first children ever, and they're beautiful and she's really happy."

In Toronto, two fraternal twin sisters were also born in 2013 and in 2014, respectively. At Trillium Health Partners-Credit Valley Hospital, older sister Gabriela Salgueiro was born on Dec. 31, 2013, at 11:52 p.m., weighing 6 pounds, 16 ounces.

On Jan. 1, 2014, at 12:00:38 a.m., younger twin Sophia Salgueiro was born, weighing 5 pounds, 13 ounces.

"They kind of got that golden ticket. They've got different birthdays," the twins' mother, Lindsay Salgueiro, told ABCNews.com. "They're going to be best friends for life."

"We really did celebrate New Year's Eve," Begazo said.

"Not a bad way to end the year and not a bad a way to start the year off," said Salgueiro.

Both the mothers and babies are healthy and looking forward to going home.

aw, how funny! 

my twin and i were so close to being born on different days. after 48 hours of labor, we finally came at 11:15 and 11:22 pm. when i was a kid, i'd always wished we each had our own day.

i didn't get the impression that it was intentional. i'm not sure how they could do that on purpose.

Well if they were born by c-section it would be pretty simple and since they are so close together in time I would guess they were born by c-sections.  I could be wrong of course and if I am then yes it would be very unique and a great story for you and your kids(obviously the moms in the story) to tell.

Are you sure in all the stories I have seen about it I haven't seen where they said that but I could be wrong.

I have cared for twins born on different days but never in different years.
