(KTVI) – A set of twins in Boston were born 24 days apart.

Alexandre is more than 3 weeks older than his brother Ronaldo. Their mom went into labor only 24 weeks into her pregnancy.

Doctors tried to stop the contractions, but 4 days later, a very premature Alexandre was born.

Doctors explained a "delayed twin delivery" could be done and she was a perfect candidate. A healthy Ronaldo was born 24 days later weighing in a full pound more than his big brother.

The twins are both doing well.
