Twins born minutes apart

Newborn Joaquin Ontiveros was born at 11:58 p.m. on New Years Eve, while his sister, Aitana de Jesus, (pictured) was born in the next year at 12:16 a.m. The second twin, a girl, was born 12:16 a.m EST on Monday, Jan. 1, 2018 and she weighed 4 lbs 10 oz. and was 16 inches, according to a Daily Mail report.

Rios gave birth to the twins via C-section almost 4 weeks early, she said.

While Joaquin gets bragging writes for being older than his sister, Aitana was also the first baby born in Kern County in 2018.

Their parents say the babies came about a month early with the due date being in late January.

The twins, Joaquin and Aitana de Jesus Ontiveros were both due to arrive January 27, 2018.

Nonetheless, not many will be able to empathise with being born in an entirely new year.

Anyone who's a younger twin can understand the frustration of being born only a few minutes after their sibling, with the elder of two lording over the fact for their whole lives.

According to the Daily Mail, which also picked up on the Delano twins, there were four of them in the USA previous year. "But then it turned out Maria was in labour, which was a surprise".

"I feel really happy because I just had my two babies", Rios, the twins' mother, said.
