• A woman gave birth to her first twin, Alfredo, at 11:45 p.m. on New Year's Eve
  • The second twin, Aylin, arrived 15 minutes later on New Year’s Day 2022
  • The doctor called it one of the most memorable deliveries of her career

A pair of twins, born just 15 minutes apart, will not be sharing their birthday, month, or year as one of the siblings was born in 2021 and the other in 2022.

The rare birth was reported at the Natividad Medical Center in California.

Fatima Madrigal went into labor and gave birth to her son, Alfredo Antonio Trujillo, at 11:45 p.m. on New Year's Eve, according to PEOPLE. The mother then gave birth to her second twin, Aylin Yolanda Trujillo, exactly 15 minutes later when the clock struck midnight.

Alfredo arrived into this world weighing 6 lbs., 1 oz. while his sister, who was the area’s first baby to be born in 2022, weighed 5 lbs., 14 oz., according to Natividad Medical Center. The hospital described their unique birth as “a 1 in 2 million” occurrence.

“Baby Aylin Yolanda Trujillo was born exactly at midnight in 2022, but get this: Her twin brother, Alfredo Antonio Trujillo, was born 15 minutes before in 2021!” the hospital wrote on Facebook.

Madrigal never expected her twins to have two different birthdays and shared her feelings in a Natividad Medical Center press release.

"It's crazy to me that they are twins and have different birthdays," Madrigal said. "I was surprised and happy that she arrived at midnight."

Dr. Ana Abril Arias, a family doctor at the hospital, felt the incident was a great way to ring in the new year.

“This was definitely one of the most memorable deliveries of my career,” Dr. Arias said.

"It was an absolute pleasure to help these little ones arrive here safely in 2021 and 2022," she added. "What an amazing way to start the New Year!"

Alfredo and Aylin are the latest additions to Madrigal and Robert Trujillo's brood. The couple has three other children — two other girls and a boy, according to the New York Post. Madrigal said her older son is excited to have a baby brother.

Several Twitter users, who saw the hospital’s announcement, congratulated Madrigal and Trujillo after the rare birth.

“What an awesome and unique story to tell as they grow up,” one commenter said while another wrote, “Congratulations to the parents, and welcome to the world- babies. Hope you all will have a good life ahead!!!”

“So so awesome!!” said another Twitter user. “Much congratulations! They are so adorable. They have their own birthdays.”
