Jaeylyn and Luis Salgado are twins with a difference. They don’t share the same birthday or even the same birth year.
The twins were born on either side of the new year in hospital in San Diego. Jaelyn arrived first at 11.59pm on 31 December 2015 and Luis followed her at 12.02am 1 January 2016.
Dad, Luis Salgado spoke to NBC San Diego about the excitement surrounding the births:
“We were actually watching the clock. We wanted to see if we were one of the first ones,” The family initially had a cesarean section scheduled for the 6 January, but doctors called Mum Maribel Salgado in earlier due to one of the babies presenting in a breech position.
Nurse Lynnette also spoke of the births with NBC San Diego:
“It’s very unusual and it’s very special. I haven’t seen it in all my 34 years of nursing.”
Baby Luis and Jaelyn join 3-year-old big sister Isabella.
