Twins born in Indiana have birthdays in different decades

CARMEL, Ind. (AP) — Twins siblings born in an Indiana hospital around the New Years holiday have birthdays in different decades.

Dawn Gilliam delivered one baby, Joslyn, at 11:37 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2019, and a second baby, Jaxon, 30 minutes later at 12:07 a.m. on January 1, 2020.

“We’re kind of speechless still,” said Gilliam’s partner Jason Tello. They live in Pendleton.

The babies weren’t due until February, but Gilliam made a New Years Eve trip to the hospital when she had a concern about a lack of fetal movement. Gilliam said hospital staff told her should would have to deliver much sooner.

The siblings have been recovering in the neonatal intensive care unit of Ascension St. Vincent in Carmel.

Gilliam said she pictures future New Years Eves as small celebrations with family.
