Twins are always an exciting and eagerly anticipated event.

What makes our heroes’ birth even more extraordinary is that they were born a year apart due to their birth dates.

And here’s how it all unfolded.

The suburb of Acari in Rio de Janeiro was the birthplace of these extraordinary twins.

Remarkably, despite being born just three minutes apart, they entered the world in different years. Can you believe it?

At 23:10, Silva da Lima, the mother of the twins, arrived at the hospital experiencing contractions. Due to medical reasons, she required a cesarean section.

The woman was swiftly escorted to the operating room, where both children and mother received medical assistance.

Gabriela was born on December 31, 2019, at 23:58, weighing 2,460 kg and measuring 47 cm, while her younger brother, Rian, arrived exactly 3 minutes later, on January 1, 2020, weighing 2,860 kg and measuring 49 cm.

Due to their premature birth at 35 weeks, the children needed to remain in the hospital for an additional week.

Doctors noted that twin births are exceptionally uncommon.

Now, Faustino da Silva’s family commemorates the New Year as a truly special family occasion.
