This is one of those rare occurances and yet I’m sure the parents are very excited. Twin boys were born 10 weeks early, but both will have seperate birthdays.
Marcello was born at 11:59 pm of December 31, 2009 and his twin brother, Stephano was born at January 1, 2010 at 12:00am. Yes, only a minute apart. Obviously their birth wasn’t planned out like this and they will be in the hospital for at least another eight weeks. But as many that have given birth to twins can tell you, sometimes they come early.
The father, Juan Velasco, said he was very happy that the boys got to have two different birthdays. I agree, this way at least they’ll always have some individuality and won’t have to share everything.
Margarita Velasco delivered the twins by cesarean section at Tampa General Hospital.
Marcello was delivered just before midnight. His twin, Stephano, was delivered just as the new year began.
Their father Juan says it’ll be good for each boy to have his own birthday party.
Congratulations to the parents, it looks like 2010 is already beginning to start off with a bang.
