Twin infants born just as New Year’s Champagne corks were popping share the same parents, but different birth years.
Jaelyn’s brother Luis was born about two minutes into 2016, local media reported.
Maribel Valencia holds her newborn twins at the San Diego Kaiser Permanente Zion Medical Center in San Diego. “We were actually watching the clock,” the pleased father — also named Luis — told the local NBC television station.
“We wanted to see if we were one of the first ones” born in the new year. Both infants, who had not been expected to arrive until later this month, and their mother were reported to be doing well.
