Two Sets of New Year's Twins Are Born A Year Apart!

New Year's Eve baby, meet New Year's Day baby. Oh, and by the way, you're twins.

Even if your kids aren't twins, but have birthdays close to one another, you know how difficult it can be to make their special day feel, well, special. Two moms got lucky this New Year's and can celebrate their twins' birthdays not only on different days, but different years!

Two sets of twins were born minutes – and yet, a year – apart this week, as moms in Washington, D.C., and Toronto gave birth in the final moments of 2013, and the first moments of 2014, ABC News reports.

Yaleni Santos Tohalino welcomed her 6-pound, 4.9-ounce daughter Lorraine Yaleni Begazo in the nation’s capital at 11:58 p.m., on Dec. 31, and her son, 5-pound, 10.4-ounce Brandon Ferdinando Begazo, at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 1.

In Canada, Lindsay Salgueiro delivered healthy fraternal twin girls – big sis Gabriela on Dec. 31 at 11:52 p.m., and Sophia, less than 10 minutes later on Jan. 1 at 12:00:38 a.m.

“They kind of got that golden ticket,” Salgueiro tells the network. “They’ve got different birthdays. They’re going to be best friends for life. … Not a bad way to end the year and not a bad a way to start the year off.”

Yep, baby New Year earned serious bonus points this time around. Cheers!
