Twins Born 87 Days Apart

It sounds crazy, but it’s true! It happened in Ireland in 2012, and furthermore it made it into the Guinness Book Of World Records!

The mother’s name is Maria Jones-Elliot, and she gave birth to twins Amy Ann and Kate Marie 87 days apart. This makes them the twins with the longest interval between their births. Amy was born prematurely on June 1, 2012 and Kate followed on August 27th. Because Amy Ann was born at 09:16 and Kate Marie at 11:01, the exact time between is 87 days, 1 hour and 45 minutes.
