MOREHEAD, Ky. (LEX 18) — Twins Adrian Bernard Allen, Jr., and his twin sister were born to proud parents Rhianna Burns and Adrian Allen of Morehead on January 1.

Adrian Jr. arrived at 11:04 AM weighing 5 lbs 7oz., and measuring 19 3/4 inches long. Armani arrived quickly after at 11:05 AM, at 5 lbs. 15 oz., measuring 18 1/4 inches long.

The hospital couldn't confirm they were the first twins they have ever had on New Year's Day but mom, Rhianna Burns' believes it's very rare.

"I know at Saint Claire... they said they don't ever remember a time where there were twins born on New Year... it's not every New Year's you have twinsies," said Burns.

St. Claire celebrated the first baby of the New Year by showering Adrian and Armani with gifts including a Pack ‘N’ Play, a car seat, a diaper bag and diapers, a sleepy time baby gift set, additional basic care items, and a handcrafted wooden rocking horse built and donated by local woodworker Paul Glesge.

"The hospital was amazing, Saint Claire did well. All the employees, the nurses, everyone did a great job so we are thankful for sure," said Burns.
