Jan. 2 (UPI) -- A New Jersey couple welcomed a set of twins who were born not only on different days, but in different years.

Ezra Humphrey was born at 11:48 p.m. Dec. 31 at Virtua Voorhees Hospital in Voorhees, giving him the same birthday as father Billy Humphrey, 36. Fraternal twin Ezekiel was born at 12:28 a.m. Jan. 1.


"I was very excited [about] the potential of having my boys on my birthday," Billy Humphrey told Good Morning America. "We went in that day and I wasn't quite sure if they're going to come today or not, but having one of them at least on my birthday was a huge blessing and a gift."

Their mother, Eve Humphrey, 34, said she had gone to the hospital Dec. 30, but was sent home due to a false alarm. The next day, she returned.

"My water broke. And I'm like, 'Happy birthday. I think I have to go to the hospital,'" Eve Humphrey recalled.

Billy Humphrey wrote on Instagram that his newborn sons are "so special, they couldn't even share being born in the same year."


"I just know they're going to be world changers. And they couldn't share the same day, right? They needed their own spotlight," Billy Humphrey told WABC-TV.
