The births were a surprise to the girls’ parents: the babies were not expected to arrive until Jan. 19.

“It feels like an overwhelming experience, I guess,” said Lindsay Salgueiro, the twins’ mother. “It’s also exciting to know that, especially

knowing that one finished the year and one started the year.”

Mom and the girls are said to be doing fine.

The couple also has two sons.
