POSTS WITH TAG: twins & more

    We could all use a good laugh being that it's Monday and all -- and I promise this video of a little girl meeting her dad's identical twin for the first time totally delivers a chuckle or two.

    You gotta love the innocence of kids. Here this toddler is, being carried into a home by her daddy -- only to be greeted by someone who looks exactly like him, but isn't him -- which clearly confuses the hell out of her.

    The clip takes a few seconds to get going, but it's SO worth it -- so make sure to keep it rolling once you hit play. The look on this child's face when her daddy and his brother are standing there side by side is nothing short of classic.

    Whoa ... this one will really make your head spin! There are probably plenty of twins who wind up being born with different birthdays depending on how closely they're delivered -- but would you believe two sets of twins were born in two different years earlier this week?!?

    Yep. In Washington, D.C., Yaleni Santos Tohalino gave birth to a baby girl at 11:58 p.m. on December 31, 2013. And then she welcomed a baby boy at 12:01 a.m. on January 1, 2014.

    And a bit farther north of Yaleni in Toronto, another mom, Lindsay Salgueiro, delivered a set of twin girls -- one at 11:52 p.m. on the 31st and the other slightly after 12:00 p.m. on the 1st.

    Crazy ... right?

    What’s better than a new baby? Three new babies. Especially if they are once-in-a-million naturally conceived identical triplets.

    Abby, Brin, and Laurel Hepner were born November 22 to Hannah and Tom Hepner, who were not using any fertility treatments. Just one fertilized egg split into three, and voila! Three sisters with a matching set of DNA.

    A French nurse posted the best video on YouTube -- newborn twin babies hugging in the bath. Seriously -- this is just about the cutest, most touching thing you’ll watch in a long, long time. I take no responsibility for any deaths by adorableness when you see it.

    The little ones can’t stop holding each other as the nurse cradles them in the water, and they just look so happy and content to be together that it’s easy to imagine what it was like for them in the womb. No wonder twins have such a special bond!

    When I first heard that dads David Tutera and Ryan Jurica are raising their twin babies separately after their divorce, I couldn't help but get a bit of a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach.

    Celebrity event planner David and his ex Ryan welcomed the twins via a surrogate -- but they decided to end their relationship very soon after the embryo transfer was complete. David admits that they never even talked about keeping the babies together. Instead, David has custody of his biological daughter, Cielo, and is raising her in California, while Ryan is bringing up her brother who is his biological child, Cedric, all the way across the country in Connecticut.

    My wife is expecting twin boys (we've dubbed them Hans and Frans for now) and the news kind of rocked our world, given we already have two kids. We were trying for more but weren’t looking to double down, exactly. 

    Of course we’re excited to be expanding our family, but impending multiples has forced me to admit and rethink certain pre-conceived notions I held about the multi-zygotic subset of our species. Such as:

    A pair of conjoined twin boys were successfully separated at Medical City Children’s Hospital in Dallas, Texas, last Saturday, after enduring a six-hour surgery.

    When Owen and Emmett Ezell were born on July 17, they were connected at the chest and belly, and they shared a liver and intestines. And even though they are still in intensive care and have a long road ahead of them as far as recovery goes, their dad reports that they are doing well and are starting to "open their little eyes" and "wiggle their little fingers." (OMG. Doesn't the vision of them moving like that take your breath away?)

    And now he and his wife are thinking about the day they will finally get to bring their precious twins home -- as two individual little miracles.

    OMG. It certainly took long enough, but Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer's twins' names are no longer a big secret -- and they're so sweet and adorable we can hardly stand it.

    Seriously, can you believe they managed to go eight months without letting the cat out of the bag? (They're really good at the whole tight-lipped thing.)

    About a week or so ago, there was a rumor floating around that their baby girl and boy had been named Katya and Andrew, but based on a comment Stephen made about who he would be spending Father's Day with this weekend, it looks as though those aren't the twins' monikers at all.

    (Not even close.)

    You gotta give Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer some serious credit: The True Blood stars' twins were born 9 months ago, and we still know next to nothing about the babies. Pretty much all we know are their genders (a boy and a girl) and even those were a mystery for a good long time. Hey, I don't blame the couple for wanting a little privacy, and I especially don't blame them for keeping the twins' names a secret all this time. Let's face it, celebs just can't win when it comes to baby names: Too weird! Too boring! What were they thinking?!

    But the wait is (maybe) over at last! Rumor has it the twins are named ... Katya and Andrew! Awww, those are super cute names! Not weird OR boring. Of course, Katya and Andrew do happen to be the names of Anna Paquin's older brother and sister ... hmmm.

    After enduring a 14-hour-long surgery, a pair of 6-month-old conjoined twins were separated successfully this week at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at Virginia Commonwealth University.

    A'zhair and A'zhiah Jones' mother, Nachell Jones, learned her baby girls were joined together during the 13th week of her pregnancy, and she delivered them via C-section back in October.

    But it wasn't until they made their entrance into the world that doctors learned how exactly they were conjoined. It turns out they shared a liver and a pericardium.
