Alfredo Antonio Trujillo was born at 11.45pm on New Year’s Eve (31.12.21) at Natividad Medical Center in Monterey County, California before twin sister Aylin Yolanda Trujillo arrived as the clock struck midnight - meaning that she was born on New Year's Day (01.01.22).

The twins were welcomed by their parents Fatima Madrigal and Robert Trujillo and defied odds of around one in two million with their births in separate years.

Madrigal said: "It's crazy to me that they are twins and have different birthdays.

"I was surprised and happy that she arrived at midnight."

Dr. Ana Abril Arias, the family doctor at the medical centre, called the twins' birth as "one of the most memorable" of her career.

She said: "It was an absolute pleasure to help these little ones arrive here safely in 2021 and 2022. What an amazing way to start the new year."
