Babies born on the first of January are always in the news, as they arrive in the world at the beginning of a new year. But there are cases in which, in addition to being “the first babies of the New Year”, their birth is distinguished by a special or unusual situation.

The news was released by the hospital, the Natividad Medical Center, which published on its social networks and website the news of the delivery of the twins who were born on a different day, month and year:

Although they are rare, this is not the first case of twins born in different years. In fact, in 2017 this happened six times, with pairs of twins and twins who were born in different years.
