According to the twins' parents, they knew the girl would be born first.
The twins' mother said: "We've known for a while that she was going to be born first. She's been in position for most of the pregnancy. Of course, [Jaxon] was breech. So, it took a while for him to come."
The couple also has 10-year-old and five-year-old children.
Meanwhile, two-year-old sisters Safa and Marwa Ullah, from Charsadda, Pakistan underwent successful major operations to separate their heads at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), London.
