No, we didn't. It is possible that Battler is older, it is just as possible that he is a bit younger.

Battler and Jessica are both 18 years old. The baby is supposedly from "19" years ago. So is Rosa's story about Beatrice-2. For Natsuhi's baby to be completely factual and the Other Battler to be that baby, Our Battler has to be almost a year older than his stated age, because of all people, his birthday is precisely known. It is sort of possible for Natsuhi to become pregnant with Jessica at the time.

It all looks similar but still doesn't correctly fit together.
