article imageTwo sets of New Year's twins born in separate years (video)

By Anne Sewell     Jan 2, 2014 in World
In a rather rare occurrence this New Year's, two sets of twin babies were born in separate years, in two different countries. There will be no fighting over birthdays in these two families.
While everyone else was going crazy, blowing whistles, drinking champagne and generally seeing in the New Year, two separate mothers were busy giving birth to their twin babies.
Not only were they both delivering their babies however, as in both cases, the twins were born in separate years, with one sibling arriving in 2013 and the other in 2014.
It's not all that difficult for twins to have separate birthdays, but when they are born in separate years as well, it is an unusual occurrence.
In Washington, D.C. Yaleni Santos Taholino gave birth to her baby daughter, Lorraine Yaleni Begazo at 11:58 pm on December 31 at the Medstar Washington Hospital Center. Lorraine weighed in a 6 pounds, 4.9 ounces. A few minutes later at 12:01 a.m. on January 1, 2014, Brandon Ferdinando Begazo came into the world, weighing 5 pounds, 10.4 ounces.
The twins' father, Warren Begazo was over the moon and told the media that he was so glad his son Dylan would now have siblings. He said:
“I feel wonderful. Full of joy and happiness and a full sense of realization.”
“This is her first children ever, and they’re beautiful and she’s really happy. We really did celebrate New Year’s Eve.”

Meanwhile all the way in Toronto at Trillium Health Partners-Credit Valley Hospital, Lindsay Salgueiro gave birth to two healthy fraternal twin sisters.
Gabriela Salgueiro arrived on December 31, 2013 at 11:52 p.m. weighing a good 6 pounds, 16 ounces, followed at 12:00:38 a.m. on Jan 1, 2014 by her younger sister, Sophia Salgueiro, who weighed in at 5 pounds, 13 ounces.
Their proud mother told ABCNews.com:
“They kind of got that golden ticket. 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 way to start the year off.”
In both cases, the mothers and their twin offspring are well and happy and looking forward to going home.
