Meet the United States twins born minutes apart but in two different years

The set of twins were born in Delano, at Delano Regional Medical Center, one at the end of 2017 and one at the start of 2018, according to Bakersfield television station KERO.

The first twin was born at 11:58 p.m. Sunday. Eighteen minutes later, at 12:16 a.m. Monday, his little sister Aitana entered the world.

A doctor who helped deliver the twins says this is the first time he's experienced anything like this.

The first baby born in Kern County in 2018 was in Delano.

The babies' parents said that they were about a month early.

When Maria Esperanza Flores Rios went into labour on New Year's Eve at 7pm, she probably wasn't expecting the surprise that was coming her way. Perhaps what's most interesting is not just that the twins were born in different years, but of course they have different birthdays. Neither day, nor month, and not the year either, for sure!

Her original due date was January 17, with a c-section scheduled for Jan 10.

Maria Flores' twins were born less than 20 minutes away.
