Twins: Ashton, Alicia Alston Born minutes apart, 2010/2011
Burlington, NC -- Christy and Marlin Alston were surprised one year ago when they gave birth to the last baby of 2010 and the first baby in 2011 in the triad. Ashton Alston was born at 11:58 P.M. on new years eve, while his sister Alicia was born right at midnight.
It was quite the surprise as the twins' due date was not scheduled until February 20th. Christy was scheduled to give birth earlier in the day on December 31st, but the doctors were forced to push back the delivery due to several other emergencies in the hospital. Despite their premature births, both babies are now healthy and keeping the family busy.
The family plans to celebrate both birthdays this Sunday on January 1st. Their oldest son Aric Alston does not have to wait long for his 14th birthday celebration either, as he was born on January 3rd.
