A pair of fraternal twin boys—Miles, born on Feb. 28 and Walter, born on Leap Day—will have birthdays years apart after they were born around midnight at Sutter Health’s Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley. Meet the new parents and their two new additions on KRON, KTVU and in the Contra Costa Times.

A little further north, Jade and Ronny Ward welcomed their son, Jaron, at Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento. Mother and father tell KFBK about their excitement and well wishes for their first-born. KCRA also covered the story.

As announced in The Davis Enterprise, Christopher Daniel Wuest arrived more than a week later than expected at Sutter Davis Hospital, coming into the world at about 2 a.m.  While his father said, “I’m excited, relieved and altogether happy,” his mother joked, “…we would save a lot of money on birthday presents, only having to buy them every four years.”

The not-for-profit Sutter Health network welcomes one out of 14 babies born in California.* That’s more than 3 kindergarten classes each day! If you or someone you love is expecting, visit our pregnancy and newborn website.
