Twins Born on Different Day, Month and Year

A Detroit mother gave birth to twin boys on different days and in different months of different years.

Tangernika Woods and her husband welcomed their first twin, Tarrance, at 11:51 p.m., Wednesday, New Years Eve 2008. Their second twin, Tariq, made his entrance 26 minutes later at 12:17 a.m. Thursday, the first day of January 2009.

    that’s kind of cool. i’m sure she’ll get tired of explaining how she has twins born in different years and months but it will make a cute story.

    I would be excited that the twins will have separate birthdays. Then they will each get individual attention.

    Wow, I’m sure that’s a really rare situation! Great story.

  4. I have always wondered how many times that has happened. I am a twin and I know that people have brought that up before with me.

  5. Its amazing, Its the magic of time.

    Thanks for posting

  6. VERY cool. I wanted my Dr. to deliver one at 11:59 and then one after 12:00 so they would have different bdays. Didn’t quite happen that way! So cool that it was diff months and years too!!!!

  7. If they’re identical twins then this would be the ultimate way to tell them apart!
