Meet Sawyer and Everett Shay, two twins born just minutes apart in Arizona in the US.

But, as Sawyer arrived on New Year's Eve at 23:50, and Everett at 12:01 on New Year's Day, they were born in two different years!

Mum Holly said that their arrival had been a "perfect birth."

Husband Brandon added: "Everett was stubborn, hanging on until after midnight."

He said: "I think it's mostly going to be Sawyer teasing Everett over him being the eldest."
