An Arlington family celebrated New Year’s Eve with the birth of a new son and then followed that up on New Year’s Day with the birth of another one.

The fraternal twin brothers were born on different days and different years at Medical City Arlington on Dec. 31, 2016 and Jan. 1, 2017. Cassandra Martinez was due to deliver her third and fourth babies on Jan. 20, but they came early.

“I definitely was not expecting to spend the holiday in hospital, but I’m glad they’re here and healthy,” said Martinez, the twins’ mother. “Way better than the ball drop!”

Jordan Jeremy Sanchez was delivered by natural birth at 11:46 p.m. on Dec. 31, weighing 6 pounds and 3 ounces. His 5-pound, 4-ounce twin brother, J’aiden Michael Sanchez was born by c-section at 12:12 a.m. on New Year’s Day, making him the first baby born at Medical City Arlington in 2017.

Medical City Arlington delivered more than 4,100 babies in 2016. The facility is currently under construction for a Women’s Hospital, which will add two additional floors to its existing dedicated Women’s tower. The Women’s Hospital is scheduled to open in 2018 and is part of a $100 million capital investment at Medical City Arlington.

While the birth of Martinez’s twins was unusual, it also happened around the same time in Clearfield, Utah, where a Davis County couple celebrated the arrival of twin boys born in two different years, one in late 2016, the other in the early minutes of 2017.
