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.
