Newborns Lydia and Timothy Ridgeway are already pretty famous. Medical researchers say they may be the world’s oldest twin babies.

They were born in an Oregon hospital recently from embryos frozen 30 years ago.

The Nation Embryo Donation Center says that makes them the new record holders.

The previous longest-frozen embryo resulting in birth was about 27 years old.

And — as if Lydia and Timothy’s births weren’t special enough — they also were born on Halloween, October 31st.
