Have You Heard about the Latino Twins Born in Different Years?

Jaelyn Valencia and Luis Valencia Jr. are twins — twins born in DIFFERENT years.

That’s right. These two little tykes born in San Diego were just two minutes apart, but those two minutes proved to make a big difference on their birthdays. Jaelyn Valencia was born at 11:59 p.m. Dec. 31, 2015 and her twin brother, Luis Valencia Jr., was born at 12:01 a.m. Jan. 1, 2016. Can’t even imagine the “I’m older” convos that will happen with these guys.

The twins were not due until the end of January, but parents Maribel and Luis Valencia were called in to the San Diego Kaiser Permanente Zion Medical Center on New Years Eve because Luis Jr. was in a breeched position.

BUT! That’s not all.  The times of the births might make Jaelyn Valencia the last baby born in San Diego County in 2015 and Luis Valencia Jr. might be the first baby born in San Diego County for 2016.

While the family is all smiles now, Luis Valencia is worried about the future. “[Maribel] really wanted to have the babies on the same birthday because you know later on in the years, they’re going to have a little confrontation and be like, ‘my birthday came first,’ so it means two birthday parties, back to back,” Luis Valencia told NBC 7 San Diego.

These Twin Sisters Gave Birth To Babies Just One Day Apart From Each Other And It’s The Sweetest Thing

Just when you thought identical twins couldn’t get any closer!

When “Total Bellas” stars Brie and Nikki Bella (twin sisters and WWE fighters) first announced that they were pregnant, no doubt their fans were delighted twofold! Now there’s even more room for excitement. The twin sisters, who star on the reality show “Total Bellas,” announced over the weekend that they each gave birth to baby boys.

Just one day apart from each other!

In a post to her Instagram page, Brie Bella was the first to share the news.

“It’s a BOY!!!” Brie wrote in a caption to her Instagram page, noting that her son was born on the first of August. “We are overwhelmed with joy and everyone is healthy!!!”

This is Brie’s second child with her husband Daniel Bryan.

Just a few hours later, Nikki Bella made a separate announcement revealing that she’d given birth just one day before.

Writing about her son’s birth, Nikki wrote “Our baby boy is here and we couldn’t be HAPPIER and more in LOVE! Everyone is safe and healthy.” She noted that her son was born just one day before her new nephew on August 31, 2020.

Before they delivered their two sons, the 36-year-old sisters posed for photos earlier this year celebrating their twinning motherhood.

“This pregnancy has been a special one. To experience this with my sister during a time of uncertainty and turmoil has been a blessing,” she wrote in a post back in July. “As Twins I kept wondering if our bodies were going to change the same or if we’d be different. It’s crazy how identical our pregnancies have become…from cravings to symptoms. We are coming to the end of our pregnancy and this will be one I’ll remember forever. Can’t wait to meet her little boy and I can’t wait to see what I’ll be having. This pregnancy started as a surprise and I’m happy to end it as one.”

In a separate post, Nikki Bella called her pregnancy an “incredible journey” despite current tough times. “I have embraced the changes of the human body, even though that can be tough at times. I have embraced the feeling of being uncomfortable knowing I am growing a life that will be one of my own,” she wrote. “I have already felt the lioness in me come out even more knowing that I am ready to protect, teach, love and guide. And to go through all of this with my twin sister? Goodness I would say I am one lucky woman that God knew my timing of becoming a mom was divine. Can’t wait to meet you little boy in 4 weeks.”

Throughout their pregnancies, the sisters were open to sharing their process with tons of beautiful pictures on their social media accounts.

Update: Amber Lynn Gilles is Internet famous for trying to shame a Starbucks barista on Facebook for telling her to wear a mask. Now she is becoming Internet famous for claims she is the victim and deserves half of the money raised on GoFundMe.

Gutierrez is now $100,000 richer after his friend Matt Cowan set up the GoFundMe to make the bad experience better. The original goal for the GoFundMe page was $1,000 but the amount keeps on growing as people share the love with Gutierrez.

According to the GoFundMe, Cowan set up for Gutierrez to meet with a financial advisor to help him invest the money. Gutierrez has said that he wants to use the money to pursue his dream of being a dancer. Even more, the young mans shared in a video that he wants to use the money to help others chase their dreams in dance as well.

“We crossed the $100,000 mark,” reads the GoFundMe page. “A huge thank you to everyone who has donated. Lenin is overjoyed and at a loss of words at the kindness that has been shown to him by everyone worldwide.”

After the fundraiser made a lot of money, Gilles has decided to sue for half of the money she feels she deserves. However, she needs people to send her money so she can hire an attorney to take on the case. The fundraiser was started on July 2, 2020, and has raised $460 of the $5,000 goal in two weeks.

“I have been attacked by liberals, the organizations who form many Facebook hate groups, I am silenced on media platforms and censored,” Gilles claims on her GoFundMe page. “I have been slandered and defamed on a GoFundMe raiser, he used my photo and personal information without my permission.”

Gilles claims that she has a medical condition and showed a note from a chiropractor saying she has a breathing condition.

Original: Karens are everywhere and one Starbuck barista in San Diego encountered one in the wild without a face mask. Lenin Gutierrez asked a customer if she had a mask when he saw her without one. She said no and refused to put on one. She then went to social media to call him out.

Face masks have become a very controversial issue. The most important tool in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic has become a politicized issue. Conservatives have denounced the facial coverings claiming they infringe on their rights and are unconstitutional. A Vinn diagram of people protesting the lockdown and not wanting to wear masks would show a lot of overlap.

California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a mandate ordering al Californians to wear facial coverings when they are in public. Private businesses, like Starbucks, are allowed to refuse service to anyone that employees deem necessary. During a pandemic that has killed more than 120,000 Americans and infected more than 2.6 million, facial coverings are crucial.

Gutierrez is the one coming out ahead when a GoFundMe was set up to show him support.

So far, more than $49,000 have been raised to help Gutierrez. The money is being donated by people who are thanking him for stand up to the woman who thinks she is too good to wear a mask. If you want to donate, you can click here.

Gutierrez took to Facebook to thank everyone who donated to him.

I’ve received numerous messages asking for my side of the story. Since this seems to be the most popular thread I decided to post my personal experience here. Thank you all for the love and support.

The barista was so moved by the donations. The young man shared that he was working at Starbucks to make the money to pursue his dreams of dancing. According to his Facebook, he likes Folklorico, the native dance of Mexico. There is no doubt that $49,000 will definitely help him pursuing is dreams of diving deeper into dancing.

Don’t forget that we are still in the middle of a pandemic. COVID-19 has not slowed down in the U.S. Instead, the number of infections continues to rise in the U.S. with more than 40,000 falling ill on Thursday. Facial coverings are the best tool we have to slow the spread. Be smart. Be safe. Listen to the scientists. We can make it through this together.
