Twins born on different Days, Months, Years

Twins born on different Days, Months, Years
A woman in Detroit gave birth to twin boys on different days of different months of different years! How it is possible? The twins entered the world during the last few minutes of New Year's Eve and the early few minutes of New Year.

Tangernika Woods and her husband welcomed their first twin, Tarrance, at 11:51 PM on Wednesday, December 31, 2008. Their second twin, Tariq Griffin, entered the world 26 minutes later at 12:17 AM Thursday, January 1, 2009. The babies were born at Crittenton Hospital in Rochester.

This was really a special case and the parents of those twin boys could never imagine a more special delivery. Tangernika Woods later told reporters "It was a shock," adding she had wanted to give birth to the boys on New Year's Day, but the fraternal twins had other plans." Interestingly, the boy's father Tarrance Sr. is a twin himself. The couple also has a 7-year-old daughter and an 11-month-old son.
