CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

Twins share almost everything, but twin girls born at the Memorial Hospital of Carbondale Birthing Center don't even share the same birth year.

Ethan and Becky Carson of Ava, Illinois welcomed their girls on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1.

Brenna Kay was born at 11:18 p.m. on New Year's Eve while Lynlee Renee was born around 12:20 a.m. on New Year's Day. 

"My contractions kind of slowed down, and ironically they looked over and said its already past midnight and so I did get to give my husband and my newborn Brenna a kiss and then 22-minutes later there was miss Lynlee," said Rebecca Carson. 

The twins were born five weeks early so they are still under observation at the Carbondale Memorial Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). However, Carson said they should be out of the hospital in the next week or two.
