San Diego twins born in two different years

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8/CNS) - A baby girl and boy arrived one minute before and two minutes after the new year at a San Diego hospital Friday and Thursday night.

Jaelyn Valencia was born at 11:59 p.m. New Year's Eve at San Diego Kaiser Permanente Zion Medical Center in Mission Valley. Jaelyn's little brother, Luis, arrived at 12:02 a.m. New Year's Day.

The twins were born to mother Maribel, 22, and her husband, Luis Valencia.

Jaelyn weighed four pounds, 15 ounces, while her brother Luis tipped the scales at five pounds, nine ounces.

Both infants were happy and healthy as was their mother following her delivery, a Kaiser spokeswoman said.

Doctors at Kaiser said the babies were due at the end of January, but they called the mother in because one was in a breech position.

The father, Luis Valencia, called it a New Year's blessing to have two healthy children.

Maribel works as a cashier at San Diego International Airport, while husband Luis is a Navy diesel mechanic. The couple have another daughter, Isabella, age 3.
