SAN DIEGO (CBSLA.com/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.

A news station in San Diego 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 hospital tweeted a photo of the mother and babies with the caption: “KPSD delighted to welcome its newest members… Meet the Valencia twins-last baby of 2015 and first baby of 2016!”

The father, Luis Valencia, called it a New Year’s blessing to have two healthy children.
