Two-year twins: Babies born Dec. 31 and Jan. 1 in San Diego and Phoenix

SAN DIEGO — For the second straight year, twins in San Diego are getting attention because, though born just minutes apart, one has a birthday in 2016 and one in 2017.

KFMB-TV reports the twin girls were born at Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns.

One girl arrived at 11:56 p.m. on Dec. 31, and the other came on Jan. 1, 2017, at midnight.

The family was not available for comment.

Last year, a baby girl and boy arrived one minute before and two minutes after the New Year at San Diego Kaiser Permanente Zion Medical Center.

Also, a Glendale, Ariz., couple made headlines with their babies, Phoenix TV stations reported. The couple had the last baby born in the Phoenix-area in 2016 and the first of 2017.
