Indiana twins born just thirty minutes' apart - but are born in different decades

Posted: Updated:
(CNN Newsource) -

These two newborns might be twins, but they don't exactly share a birthday -- having been born in completely different years and decades.

Dawn Gilliam and Jason Tello, of Pendleton, Indiana, rang in the new year in a special way: with one birth before and one birth after the clock struck midnight.

The twins -- Joslyn and Jaxon Tello -- weren't actually due until February 19. Gilliam went to Ascension St. Vincent Carmel Hospital on New Year's Eve, concerned about a lack of fetal movement, according to CNN affiliate WBNS.

Joslyn was born at 11:37 p.m. on New Year's Eve in 2019, weighing 4 lbs. and 11 oz.

Exactly 30 minutes later, Jaxon came along, weighing 4 lbs. and 7 oz. And by then Indiana was already in 2020, meaning Jaxon has a completely different birth day, year and decade than Joslyn.

This will surely make for some interesting sibling rivalries growing up.

Parents Gilliam and Tello both expressed shock to WBNS.

"Earlier, we talked about it would be great to have them born on different dates," Tello said. "But here we are with this surprise - different dates, different years. That was definitely interesting for us for sure. We're still kind of speechless still."

Joslyn and Jaxon are both on feeding tubes and could be in the hospital for some time, WBNS reported.
