They will certainly have a tale to tell about their birthdays, which fall on different days, months and years.
"It was a surprise," mother Fatima Madrigal, 28, told Reuters on Tuesday in an interview from Greenfield, California.
According to Natividad Medical Center, where the twins were born, there are about 120,000 twin births in the United States every year, but twins with different birthdays are rarer.
Some estimate the chance of twins being born in different years as one in 2 million, the hospital said.
