NICK EICHER, HOST: A mother in California gave birth to two babies recently: one last year and one this year.

How is that even possible?

REICHARD: Yeah, how?

EICHER: Well, by carrying twins, I’m glad you asked.

Alfredo Trujillo was born at 11:45 p.m. on New Year’s Eve 2021. About 15 minutes later, his twin sister made her appearance, New Year’s Day 2022.

That made Aylin Trujillo the first baby born this year in that hospital.

Turns out there’s only a 1 in 2 million chance of twins being born in different years. Amazing!

It’s The World and Everything in It.
