Meet The Twins Who Were Born A Year Apart Because Of Their Mom’s Premature Labor

For those of us who aren’t a twin, having a duplicate version of ourselves seems like fun. Inspired by films like The Parent Trap, we all crave a sidekick who can finish our sentences for us. However, this halcyon dream is abruptly torn apart with the realization that every birthday we celebrate will be shared.

Suddenly the romantic dream of having a twin becomes a nightmare featuring a joint party with a shared birthday cake, and candles that you’ll have to extinguish simultaneously. Not even the most generous of people can look positively upon this element of twinhood. But what if it were possible to become a twin, and celebrate your birthday on different days? Or different years? Well, the latter is the case for the Ontivero twins who, despite sharing the same womb, celebrate their birthday on different days one year after the other! How could something like that be possible, you ask? Well, Joaquin Ontivero was born on New Year’s Eve in 2017 at two minutes to midnight, while his little sister, Aitana was born 18 minutes later – after the world celebrated the arrival of 2018. Their extremely unique birth was a surprise to the doctors and nurses who delivered the two babies as much as it was to their proud parents who weren’t expecting their bundles of joy until January 27. As party people across the planet began to prepare for an evening of frivolous fun to welcome the New Year, Maria, a farm laborer from California, began to experience some peculiar sensations… However, unlike the rest of the world, it wasn’t because she’d drank one too many glasses of fizz. Instead, she was going into labor nearly four weeks prematurely. Maria and her husband Joaquin, also a farm laborer, quickly went to California’s Delano Regional Medical Center where they learned that the twins were on their way. “When they realized they were going to be in the hospital over New Year’s Eve, the family planned to celebrate at midnight in the break room,” a spokesperson for the elated family told The Daily Mail Online. “But then it turned out Maria was in labor, which was a surprise.” With their New Year’s celebrations over, Maria and Joaquin, who already have three daughters, began to prepare for their special twins. Having gone in to labor at 7 pm, it was hard to tell if the babies would arrive before or after the clock struck midnight – but nobody predicted that it would be both! At 11:58 pm on December 31, 2017, Joaquin was born, weighing 5lbs 9oz. Then, 18 minutes later, his twin sister arrived, weighing a lighter 4lbs 10.8oz. As if that wasn’t enough, the family was soon to receive more surprising news… Due to the unlikely timing of their twin’s birth, the Ontiveros were gifted $3,000 worth of baby supplies provided by the hospital and local community groups. “It was definitely a surprise!” said the Ontivero’s spokesperson, regarding the generous gifts the family had received. “The whole family feels humbled and blessed and excited.” Despite being premature both twins were extremely healthy. So much so that they’ve been allowed to go home to Earlimart, a small town between Fresno and Santa Barbara in America’s sunshine state, California. The Ontivero twins are not the first to be born under such special circumstances. This time last year four sets of twins were recorded to have been born over New Year’s Eve in America, and one was registered the year before! We wish the Ontivero twins all the luck for their future, although it already seems like they have plenty of luck already! As do these unique albino twins who were born with an incredible gift…
