A woman in the United States of America is currently experiencing a quadruple bundle of joy after giving birth to two sets of twins in a single year.
Alexzandria Wolliston, the Florida-based mother, gave birth to Mark and Malakhi in March 2019. She, however, explained that she was informed by doctors that she had hit the “twin lottery” as she was pregnant with another set of twins.
She gave birth to a second set of twins, Kaylen and Kayleb on December 27.
Wolliston she recently learned that both her paternal and maternal grandmothers had lost twins boys at birth, adding that her babies of joy are a gift from above.
“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,” Wolliston told local news outlet, WPTV.
The double twins’ mother told Good Morning America in another interview that all four children were conceived without in vitro fertilization.
“I say I’ve won the twin lottery,” Wolliston told the morning show, adding that the twins are “a gift from heaven.”
Wolliston, who is also mother to a 3-year-old daughter Ar’Mani, was initially nervous about having another set of twins, she told the outlet, and “wondered if my body could handle it since I just went through it.”
Though Kaylen and Kayleb were born at just 34 weeks old, there have been no major complications.
Kayleb was released from the hospital on Monday, the outlet reported, while Kayleb will remain in the neonatal intensive care unit, where he will learn to eat on his own.
