Mum gives birth to twins in two different years

Kern County Twins Born in Different Years as First Babies of 2018 Arrive

The second twin, a baby girl named Aitana, was born at 12:16 on Monday morning.

Doctors say the baby girl was slightly breached, so she had to be delivered via caesarean section.

While Joaquin gets bragging writes for being older than his sister, Aitana was also the first baby born in Kern County in 2018.

The new parents said their New Year's babies were born about a month early after being originally due on January 27 but they had a C-section scheduled for January 10, KERO reported.

A California mother celebrated the new year by welcoming twins: one in 2017, one in 2018.




Maria Flores' son was born just before midnight on New Year's Eve.

Maria Flores' twins were born less than 20 minutes away. Neither day, nor month, and not the year either, for sure! She was believed to be the first baby born in the year 2018 in Kern County, California, according to ABC15. Her original due date was scheduled for January 27.

It was therefore quite a shock when she went into labour on New Year's Eve.

Identical twins are known to be born at a rate of nearly four per 1000 births across the globe but few of these births turn out to be special.

While such cases are very rare, previous year four such twin births were recorded in the US.
