Twins Born One in 2009 & 2010

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.

The Canadian Press:

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.

      This is awesome. Just the fact of having one born in 2009 and the other in 2010 is shocking but cool.

      That is cool. I have a set of twin cousins. One was born in 2006 and one was born is 2007. It is so cool to hear of another set born like this.
