Mom Delivers 2 Sets of Identical Twins at the Same Time

baby toesFinding out you're pregnant is exciting enough as it is, so you can only imagine how Sharon Turner felt when she learned she was carrying quadruplets.

It's not every day that you realize you're expecting not one, but four children all at the same time, so you can only imagine her shock upon hearing the news.

But as it turns out, her babies had another big surprise for their mom, which wasn't revealed until after the four of them were born.


James, Joshua, Lauren, and Emily arrived seven weeks early on March 30. Yep, Sharon and her husband Julian were blessed with two boys and two girls. Did I mention they are identical? That's right -- this mom beat the 70 million to 1 odds and had two sets of identical twins.

Good grief. If she ever wants to talk to someone who can relate, she should call Tressa Montalvo, a mom in Texas who also welcomed two sets of identical twins back in February.

Since Sharon had undergone four rounds of IVF to try and conceive, she knew there was a good chance of her winding up with more than one baby. She said, "We thought about the possibility of twins, but never more than that."

And getting two pairs of twins would've been incredible enough -- but two sets of identicals? That's pretty amazing, if you ask me.

Want to know what's even crazier? Julian is a triplet himself! What are the chances of a triplet winding up with quadruplets? I'd love to hear that statistic.

These parents are definitely going to have their hands full once they bring these babies home, to say the least. But considering what miracles the four of them are, I'm sure their parents will savor every single moment with their precious twins.

Have you ever heard of someone having two sets of twins?
