Reykjavik, Iceland

Twins Baldur Logi (R) and Brynja Lill have a bath together in their home in Reykjavik.

A baby boom in Nordic nations comes as many other wealthy countries are seeing declining birth rates. The twin's parents Drifa Hrund Guomundsdottir, a molecular biologist, and her husband decided to have a third child during the pandemic and ended up with twins. "During the pandemic, in the middle of lockdown, things just kind of slowed down a lot", Guomundsdottir says. Baldur Logi, a boy (left), and Brynja Lill, a girl, were born in March 2021.
