A couple from New Jersey rang in the new year in a special way as they welcomed twins – but the babies won’t share the same birth date nor the same birth year.
Ezra was born first at 11.48pm on New Year’s Eve then his brother Ezekial was delivered 40 minutes later at 12.28am on New Year’s Day.
The brothers were born at Virtua Voorhees Hospital in South Jersey which said the parents were “thrilled” at the momentous occasion.
“Parents Eve and Billy are thrilled that their boys are healthy and will have a great birthday story to tell,” Virtua Health said.
Coincidentally, elder sibling Ezra shares his birthday with his father, also born on New Year’s Eve.
Meanwhile, two hospitals in Boston welcomed three baby girls exactly at the stroke of midnight, NBC Boston reported.
