While you people were warbling "Auld Lang Syne" and swilling bubbly, two East Coast women were busily birthing babies that were among the last of 2013—and the first of 2014, reports ABC. In Washington, DC, Yaleni Santos Tohalino gave birth to daughter Lorraine Yaleni at 11:58pm; son Brandon Ferdinando clocked in at 12:01am. Meanwhile, up in Toronto, Lindsay Salgueiro was not to be outdone: She gave birth to daughter Gabriela at 11:52pm, and just barely snuck Sophia over the wire at 12:00:38am. "They kind of got that golden ticket. They’ve got different birthdays," says Salgueiro. "They're going to be best friends for life." (More twins stories.)
