ROCHESTER, Mich. — They’re twins, all right, despite what their spanking new birth certificates say. Tariq Griffin entered the world at 12:17 a.m. on New Year’s Day at Crittenton Hospital in Rochester, Mich. Twin brother Tarrance was born a bit earlier — 26 minutes to be exact.

That means the boys have the unique distinction of having been born on different days, months and years.

Their dad, Tarrance Sr., is also a twin. The parents say the boys are doing well, which is their main concern.

    I was a nurse at a church camp this past summer. A very sweet young boy proudly told me that he and his sister were born on different days, in different years (same as yours) and in different millinnia (1999 & 2000). He told me that, at the time, there were only 6 sets of twins in the world that were born on different days. Don't know if that's true or not, but he was a pretty intelligent kid, so he may be right. If that is the case, congrats on the 7th! Monica S

    As a Midwife I am familiar with twins born on different dates I think it is unique though to be born in a different year as will happen if the first birth happens close to midnight old years day,
