Mom Alexzandria Wolliston had no idea twins ran in her family until she gave birth to two sets of twins within the same year.
Alexzandria Wolliston, a mom from Florida, clearly has quite the luck! Recently, she gave birth to her second set of twins — all in the same year (yes, you read that right!). In March 2019, Alexzandria welcomed her first set of sons, Mark and Malakhi. Her second set of boys, Kaylen and Kaleb, came into the world in December.
The odds? The 2018 twin birth rate was 32.6 twins per 1,000 births, according to CDC data. But for the same mother to give birth to two sets of twins, in the same year, well, doctors told Wolliston she had better chances of winning the lottery.
That she would have twins began to make more sense when, during the course of the year, Wolliston learned that both of her grandmothers had lost twin boys. “I always say that I feel like my grandmothers gave me their kids because two sets of twins and their twins passed away? I feel like they just sent them down for me,” she said.
Wolliston already has a three-year-old daughter, and she said that her oldest child helped prepare her for these babies.
“She was actually worse than them, so she was like two babies in one,” Wolliston said.
Wolliston said she is planning to keep her kid count right where it is.
Although things are certainly busy in the Wolliston household, Alexzandria feels incredibly blessed. “Motherhood has been great,” she said. “I love being a mother.”
