3 Sets of Twins Born Half in 2011, Half in 2012


There’s little better way to ring in a new year than with the birth of a baby. Little better way to close out a year than with the birth of a baby, for that matter. Three lucky couples recently got to do both, with sets of twins born on either side of the new year, with completely different birthdates and years, reports

In Minneapolis, Minnesota, Stephanie Peterson, went into labor on Friday, well before her February due date, reports CBS Minnesota. She gave birth at just 34 weeks to son Beckett Humenny (4 lbs, 11 oz) at 6:40 p.m. on New Year’s Eve. His twin sister Freya (5 lbs, 2.5 oz) was born at 12:26 a.m. on New Year’s Day.

In Buffalo, New York, Brighid Rosputni welcomed son Ronan Stephen (6 lbs, 14 oz) at 11:37 p.m. Saturday, the last baby born in 2011 at Women & Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, reports the Buffalo News. Brother Rory Stephen (6 lbs, 15 oz) arrived at 12:10 a.m. on Sunday. Incredibly, Rosputni’s water broke Saturday morning, but she was determined to attend her sister’s wedding, which she did, and then sent her older four children to the reception before giving birth to the twins, who were both born feet first, or breech, without any pain medication. Wow.
