Twin Girls Born In Different Years
The mother gave birth to twin babies in Texas around midnight on New Year’s Eve and they ended up being born in two different years.
Scott wrote on Facebook, “Cliff and I are so proud to introduce Annie Jo and Effie Rose Scott!” She revealed that Annie was the last baby born in 2022 at 11:55 pm and that Effie was the “ber first born in 2023 at 12:01”.
She added that the twin girls both came out “healthy and happy”.
The couple had anticipated that the babies would be born around midnight. Flewellen told CBS News, “We had kinda joked wouldn’t it be funny if, you know with the holiday and new year’s eve over the weekend if they had their own birthday. Then it turned out that was more of a possibility than we realised”.
Both parents said they like that each child gets their own birthday and added that it will help the fraternal twins keep their own identity.
Scott said, “One will always get the glitter and confetti of New Year’s Eve and one gets to kick it off with a brand-new year on New Year’s Day.”
Kali Jo Scott checked in early to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton for monitoring ahead of the C-section scheduled a week and a half before the original due date.
Reportedly, Annie Jo was the last baby born at the hospital in 2022 and Effie Rose was the first baby to be born at the hospital in 2023.
