Double date



Pregnant celebrity moms are just too glad to have their babies this year.

Iya Villania is expecting her fourth son with husband Drew Arellano. Beauty queen Wynwyn Marquez is having her first baby, a girl, with her non-showbiz partner.

Meanwhile, Kapuso star Anna Vicente is twice more ecstatic than the actress-TV presenter and Miss Reina Hispano-Americana 2017.
Vicente, a member of the cast of teleseries “Ang Dalawang Ikaw,” revealed in her Instagram post that she is carrying twins.

In the United States, 120,000 twins are born every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although common, there are still rare twins whose chance of being born is one in two million. Such is the case of Fatima Madrigal’s newborns.

Dr. Ana Abril Arias of Natividad Medical Center in California, USA helped deliver Madrigal’s son Alfredo Antonio Trujillo at 11:45 p.m. on New Year’s eve of 2021 and her daughter Aylin Yolanda Trujillo 15 minutes later on 1 January 2022. Madrigal described the births as crazy because the twins have different birthdays.

It’s the second year in a row that American twins were born on different dates. Sharing the Trujillo babies’ rarity are Joslyn Tello and her twin brother Jaxon Tello who were born 30 minutes apart.

Dawn Gilliam of Indianapolis, Indiana gave birth to Joslyn at 11:37 p.m. on 31 December 2020 and to Jaxon at 12:07 a.m. on 1 January 2021 at the Ascension St. Vincent Carmel hospital. The Tello twins’ birthdays are said to be even rarer than the Trujillo kids as they were born in different decades.

In the Philippines, a laboring mother had to hold giving birth twice after being rejected by two hospitals. It’s not that doctors can’t deliver twins for she was not carrying two babies.

The husband of the mom told GMA News that she had cold and cough, symptoms of Covid-19, so she was refused admission. Edgardo Marcelo, information officer of Ospital ng Sampaloc in Manila, explained that they cannot mix her with other maternity patients to protect the others from possible infection.

Nevertheless, the mother safely delivered her healthy baby at the patients tent outside the hospital on 4 January with the help of its staff.
