SAN DIEGO (TheBlaze/AP) — Twins in San Diego are getting some attention because, though born just minutes apart, one has a birthday in 2015 and one in 2016.
Jaelyn Valenica was born New Year's Eve at 11:59 p.m. Her twin brother, Luis Valencia Jr., arrived at 12:01 a.m. on New Year's Day.

KGTV-TV reports that the babies were due at the end of January, but doctors at San Diego Kaiser Permanente Zion Medical Center called the mother in because one was in a breech position.
The father, Luis Valencia, called it a New Year's blessing to have two healthy children.

“I was not really expecting two, so it's a big blessing to have two of them, boy and a girl for New Years,” he told KGTV.
