The odds of twins being born with different birthdays is extremely rare, but it does occasionally happen. But what are the odds that it would happen with three sets of twins in the same year!
In Minneapolis — one of the twin cities — Beckett Humenny was born 6:40 p.m. Dec. 31, 2011, followed by his sister, Freya, at 12:26 a.m. Jan. 1, 2012. In Buffalo, N.Y., Ronan Rosputni was born at 11:37 p.m., just 33 minutes before his brother, Rory, arrived at 12:10 a.m. (The Rosputni twins are shown in the photo.) And in Tampa, Fla., Jenna and Leah Bear arrived at 11:59 p.m. and 12:00 a.m., respectively.
The six babies are healthy, ranging in weight from Beckett’s 4 pounds 11 ounces (he and Freya were due in February) to Rory’s nearly seven pounds.
Rory and Ronan’s mom Brighid Rosputni, who attended her sister’s wedding earlier on Saturday, said the timing of her twins’ births was “like a dream.”
“They have completely different birth dates and years,” she told The Buffalo News. “I don’t know if it’s ever happened. I’ll have to do some research. I’ll have to Google it.”
These twins may not share a birthday, but they will share a great story!
