Unusual story: in the United States twins were born in different years (photos)

In America, the twins were born at the same time in different years: in 2016 and 2017 by a margin of ten minutes. About it reports USA Today.

According to the newspaper, the children were born in the hospital in Arizona. The first boy called Sawyer, was born at 23:51 local time on December 31. It is noteworthy that his younger brother, who was named Everett, was born 10 minutes later in 2017.

The couple is quite what they had sons, because they already have two daughters 4 and 13 years.

#PHOENIX — When twin brothers #EverettShay and #SawyerShay tell the story of the night they were born, it will include an added twist: The fact they arrived in different years. Everett was #BannerHealth”s first #Arizona baby born in 2017. He arrived at 12:01 a.m. Sunday at #BannerThunderbirdMedicalCenter in #Glendale. His brother Sawyer arrived 11 minutes earlier, at 11:50 p.m., Saturday, hospital officials said, so his birth year will forever read 2016. The #twins were born to #HollyShay and #BrandonShay of Glendale, who came to the hospital about 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Holly was 35 weeks pregnant. Sawyer weighed in at 5 pounds, 5 ounces and Everett at 4 pounds, 8 ounces, hospital officials said. “It was a perfect birth,” Holly Shay told The Republic, while holding Sawyer, wrapped in a blue striped blanket. “Everett might disagree but that’s because he’s just stubborn,” added Brandon Shay, holding Everett while cuddled inside a star-patterned blanket. “He was hanging on until after midnight.” On cue, Everett cooed as his father teased. The boys are fraternal twins, not identical. Though Sawyer is heavier, Everett is taller and was more energetic in the womb than his brother, Brandon said. #HeresMyThing
