(FOX NEWS) - Talk to any twins you know, and you will likely find the one who popped out first thinks he or she is entitled to the bragging rights of being the eldest. But for a pair of Massachusetts twins born early Sunday, that usually obvious fact was thrown into question when one boy was born before the start of daylight saving time and the other after, technically making the latter twin the older brother.
Emily Peterson gave birth to the first baby, Samuel, at 1:39 a.m., before clocks turned back at 2 a.m., Cape Cod Healthcare shared on their Facebook page. Then, 31 minutes later, she delivered Ronan. Because Ronan’s birth came after the time change, his official birth time was 1:10 a.m., not 2:10 a.m.
The West Barnstable couple thought the time change could be an issue when they headed to the hospital.
