Twins born in two different years to a mother in the US! Sounds strange? But it's true!

Scarlett Annie and Virginia Rose are twins, although one of them was born in 2016 and the other said hello to the world in 2017. Sound strange? In quite an exceptional case, a woman in the US state of California had twin babies born in two different years.

While Scarlet Annie was born at 11:56 pm, December 31, 2016, the second, Virginia Rose, was born at 12:00 am on January 1, 2017. The births happened at Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women and Newborns in Kearny Mesa, San Diego, say reports.

The babies’ last name was not made available while the parents were identified as Brittany and Brett. The family has declined to give interviews.

A similar birth happened last year when baby girl, Jaelyn, and baby boy, Luis were born to mother Maribel Valencia, 22, and her husband.
