Over New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, a couple at Ascension St. Vincent Carmel, part of Ascension Indiana, welcomed twins born a half hour apart – on different days and in different years and decades.
As noted by USA Today and the Indianapolis Star, Dawn Gilliam and her partner of seven years, Jason Tello, welcomed one baby — Joslyn — at 11:37 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2019. Exactly 30 minutes later, at 12:07 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2020, her twin brother, Jaxon, was born.
“We talked about it would be great to have them born on different dates. But here we are with this surprise — different dates, different years,” Jason Tello told reporters at a news conference in the hospital’s maternity ward.
Joslyn and Jaxon were expected on Feb. 19. They are making progress in the neonatal intensive care unit.
