Identical Twins Born Decade Apart


twin-babiesIdentical twin boys in Florida will get to celebrate their birthdays individually after they were born in separate decades. Margarita Velasco delivered the twins by caesarean section at Tampa General Hospital.

Marcello was delivered just before midnight on Thursday. His twin, Stephano, was delivered just as the new year began.

Their father Juan says it’ll be good for each boy to have his own birthday party.

The twins are in intensive care because they were born about 10 weeks early. Doctors say they’ll get to go home in about eight weeks.
