Twins Born A Record 95 Days Apart

Compiled From Wire Services

A record 95 days after her twin brother was born, Celeste Keys poked her head into the world Wednesday. She and brother Timothy were expected to go home from the hospital together this week.

Celeste was born vaginally at full term and was doing well, but her brother was 15 weeks premature when he was born Oct. 15 and is at risk for neurological problems.

“You can imagine these kids 10 years later - ‘He’s my twin but he was born in 1994 and I was born in 1995, three months later.’ That’s the kind of ‘Ripley’s Believe It Or Not’ part of it,” said Jay Goldsmith, one of their mother’s doctors at Ochsner Foundation Hospital.
