A Florida mom, Alexzandria Wolliston has started the year off making headlines for doing something that most would consider unheard of – giving birth to two sets of twins in the same year.
In March 2019 she gave birth to the first set; then, in May she learned that a second set was on the way. Mark and Malakhi – the first set, then Kaylen and Kaleb – born in December. Four boys in one year.
Wolliston wasn’t aware that twins ran in her family until the time for birth of the first set. Upon their arrival, she learned that both her grandmothers had lost sets of twin boys at birth. She now sees her babies as a blessing from above.
“I always say that I feel like my grandmothers gave me their kids because I have two sets of twins and their twins passed away,” Wolliston explained. “I feel like they just sent them down for me.”
In addition to her four boys, she also has a three-year-old daughter named Ar’Mani.
Though Kaylen and Kaleb were born at just 34 weeks old, there have been no major complications, according to Good Morning America.
Kayleb was released from the hospital on Monday, the outlet reported; while Kaleb will remain in neonatal intensive care unit until he learns to eat on his own.
“I was just thinking today, ‘Is this really happening? Who has ever heard of this happening?’” Wolliston remarked. “I’m just so amazed and grateful and thankful things turned out the way they did.”
