Four Boys=Two Sets of Twins

If you love Valentine’s Day, you’ll love this story.  On Valentine’s Day last week, a Texas couple welcomed the new additions to their family–all four of them.  Tressa Montalvo gave birth to the couple’s second through fifth sons last Thursday at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas after carrying them for 31 weeks.

The couple were originally told they were expecting twins before hearing four heartbeats.  The verdict?  Two sets of identical twins!  Conceived without any fertility treatments, the chances of this happening are one in 70 million. According to the mother, their plans for this pregnancy “succeeded a little too much.”  The boys, named Ace, Blaine, Cash and Dylan (A-B-C-D), are healthy and could be going home in the next four to six weeks.

I can only imagine the comments people must be throwing at them…from “double the double trouble” to the obligatory “you’ve got your hands full,” to the well-intentioned “now you’re done!”  But you might be surprised at Manuel’s reaction to the last one.  He’s still hoping for a girl!

Congratulations to the happy family!  Who knows, maybe soon we’ll be seeing them around HDYDI?

  1. When I heard about this yesterday my first reaction was ‘oh how I wish it was me having those babies’. I would love to have more kids! I do hope they have a good support system and willing hands to hold the babies and help with the wonderful chaos that’s about to ensue! I’m praying for wisdom and patience and some sleep for the new parents!

  2. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to
    me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll
    be bookmarking and checking back often!
