While most twins share the same birthday -- even if born minutes apart -- a Minnesota brother and sister will each get an entire birthday to him- and her-self!

George Winton Mase  and his sister Remi James, while twins, were born 17 minutes apart. George was born at 11:44 p.m., Dec. 31, 2019 while Remi was born at 12:01 a.m. Jan. 1, 2020, giving them separate birthdays and making them, technically, babies of different decades.

According to SWNewsmedia, the pair were born at 35 weeks and delivered naturally by Dr. Dennis Mohling at Ridgeview Medical Center in Waconia.

"Both babies are doing well, though as they were born early. They are in the Neonatal Care Unit (NCU) at Ridgeview," said Ridgeview Director of Marketing & Communications Lisa Steinbauer.

Remi, born January 1, shares a birthday with her grandfather on her mom's side. She and her brother George join three older siblings: William, 11; Lucia, 9; Ella, 2.5.
