Being a mother is the best feeling in the world. But what if you really wanted a baby and waited too long for it? Recently, two sisters gave birth to twins to the same man on the same day and went viral with their stories. Annie Johnston, 33, and her husband Joby live in Center Lewis, Ohio. They got married in 2005 and began trying to have a baby in 2008. The couple tried everything they could to have a child, including in vitro fertilization twice, but Johnston had not had one positive pregnancy test in all the years she had been trying to conceive.
Chrissy Knott, Annie’s older sister, found her sister really disheartened with the failed experience she received when she had a baby. And she really wanted to help her sister. So Chrissy asked her sister to carry a baby for her through surrogacy. Chrissy said: “I just wanted you to know that I would be happy to bring it along if it could help you have a family.”
On Valentine’s Day, they took ᴇggs from Annie and fertilized them with her husband’s sᴘᴇʀᴍ. Doctors implanted two embryos into Chrissy, and since Annie was on the same cycle, they decided to implant two embryos in her, just to try one more time. But then they received not only good news, but that joy quadrupled. Both women became pregnant, and both gave birth to twins; Annie is carrying two girls and Chrissy is carrying two boys.
Annie said: “She started off by saying she had doubled the good news and we just gasped. They found one in me and then they moved in and found another little bag with another fluttering hᴇartbeat, and we knew we still had Chrissy to go.”
On October 24, all four babies were born and named Charlie, Tommy, Grace and Hadley. Technically, they are twins because they were conceived on the same day, born on the same day but only carried in two separate utᴇrusᴇs. “Trying to have at least one baby, we’re delighted to have all four of them home and they’re all healthy.” Annie said
