If this happened to me, I know I would be pissed. Because, after all, what's the point of throwing your New Year's Eve away to have a kid if you don't get the full year's tax deduction for the year just ended? Well, Tarrance and Tangernika Woods at least got half their potential deduction -- Tangernika did give birth to a son, Tarrance Jr., on New Year's Eve.
She then went on to give birth to another Son, Tariq, on New Year's Day.
Japan's Oldest Surrogate Mother Carries Her Own Grandchild
At 61, this woman's age alone makes her story miraculous -- not to mention that she was giving birth to her granddaughter, and taking part in a procedure banned by the Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology's.
Yep, Tarrance Jr. and Tariq are twins born on different days, in different months, and in different years. So Tariq will be able to say "Yes, we're twins, but I turned ten and he'll turn eleven this year." That will certainly get the conversation going at parties.
At least the boys, weighing five pounds seven ounces and five pounds fifteen ounces, are healthy, despite being born in different years. Congratulations to the parents!
