Twins were born in 2 separate years — one in 2019 and the other in 2020 in just 30 minutes apart.

This happened in Indianapolis in the City of Indiana — one of the most populous cities in the U.S.

According to, one Carmel mom was in labor for two years. (OK, maybe not really, but it’s hard to resist that dad joke.)

This family welcomed twin bundles of joy — a daughter at 11:37 p.m. on Dec. 31 and a son at 12:07 a.m. on Jan. 1. Only 30 minutes apart, the siblings were born in different years (and some would argue, different decades).

Not only were their birthdays special, but they were the very last baby born in 2019 and the first baby to be born in 2020 for the hospital.

The girl, Joslyn Tello, and boy, Jaxon Tello, were born to parents Dawn Gilliam and Jason Tello at Ascension St. Vincent Carmel. Joslyn weighed 4 pounds and 11 ounces and was 17.9 inches long, and her brother, Jaxon, was 4 pounds and 7 ounces and 18.1 inches long.

In Indianapolis, Ace Moore is Eskenazi Hospital’s Baby New Year.

Born at 12:32 a.m., he weighed 8 pounds and was 21.5 inches long. Mom and baby are doing well, according to a hospital spokesperson. The hospital did not provide additional information about the family.
