New Year twins born in different years

Once the New Year’s Eve celebrations wind down, news breaks of the first babies born in the new year. But occasionally, there’s a twist.

This year, in two different cities, a mother gave birth to twins, each child born in different years – the last babies delivered in 2013 and the first in 2014.

One set of twins was born in Washington, D.C. — a baby girl on Dec. 31, 2013, at 11:58 p.m., and her twin brother on Jan. 1, 2014, at 12:01 a.m., according to the local Fox affiliate.

“I’m full of joy, energy, unbelievable happiness for this event in my life,” the twins’ father, Warren Begazo, told Fox 5.

The second set of twins was born in Toronto — fraternal twin sisters, with the first arriving on Dec. 31, 2013, at 11:52 p.m., and the younger on Jan. 1, 2014, at 12:00:38 a.m., according to

“They kind of got that golden ticket,” the twins’ mother, Lindsay Salgueiro, told “They’ve got different birthdays. They’re going to be best friends for life.”

Both the mothers and babies are doing well.

    I have twins that are now 22. It’s a nice sentiment to believe that your twins will be ‘best friends for life’, but it’s an ideal that doesn’t necessarily demonstrate how things work out.

    You are better off to let the children choose their own friends (with guidance at first) than to put your own expectations upon them. Those expectations can ruin their ‘twin’ relationship.

    Mine are identical. I gave them choice. Now they thank me often for letting them dress differently, for giving them NON-matching names, for not forcing their ‘twin-ness’ upon them constantly.

    They might have the same face, but they have different minds. Different personalities. Different wants, likes, and needs. :o)

      My mother had an identical twin and they were dressed alike until they graduated from high school. Mom said they alternated between enjoying and resenting it. It was a small town and all of their lives older people called them “Twin” even though they no longer dressed alike and had different hairstyles. They didn’t like that.

    They probably aren’t liberals or they would have been aborted.

    I am 1 of two sets of twins in my family & yes we hate to be told we are the same when we are not so don’t forget to let your twins be who they are & things will work out great for them.
