DELANO, Calif. (KERO) — There was a slight rarity in Delano, California as twins were born in different years.

It appears the first baby born in Kern County was in Delano. Delano Regional Medical Center officials tell KERO-TV that a set of twins was born at the end of 2017 and the start of 2018.

The first twin was born at 11:58 p.m. Sunday. He was 5 pounds, 9 ounces and 18 inches long. The second twin, a girl, was born 12:16 a.m Monday. She weighed 4 pounds, 10 ounces and was 16 inches long. Doctors say the girl was slightly breached, so she had to be delivered via caesarean section. She is believed to be the first baby born in 2018 in Kern County.

The parents say the babies were about a month early.
