A special delivery on Leap Day this week had one local family "leaping" for joy.

Local mom Samantha Paulino got a double dose of joy when she delivered twin boys on the rare Feb. 29.

Samantha, who lives in Cusseta, says she was surprised by the turn of events, but not because of Leap Day.

“I was really surprised, the first ultrasound we only saw one so when we saw two on the second one that was like a huge shock,” Samantha said. “They don't run in my family so it was a nice surprise.”

Little Abraham Xavier Paulino and Domanic Alexander Paulino were both born healthy, and were delivered roughly 19 minutes apart.
