An unusual thing happened to a couple. They have become parents of 6 children for 5 years. Giving birth to twins three times in a row is very rare in a couple but it happens.
Andrew, 33, and Jolene McKee, 32, are a family of eight. Aiden and Jaiden, the last twins were born six months ago.
The mother considers herself lucky to have given birth to six children being pregnant only three times. For this reason, the second and third pregnancy, was easier because she learned from the first time.
The first two twins are Peyton and Paige both five years old, Abigail and Andrew three years old are boys and girls, and Aiden and Jaiden are twin boys.
“I had no idea I’d end up with such a large family.” I believe I will only have one or two children; nevertheless, we have three different combinations: female twins, male-female twins, and now male twins. “It all came together flawlessly,” Jolene added.
Before she got pregnant with Peyton and Paige she had an abortion. “After feeling discomfort from a miscarriage, I was terrified to go to the doctor for a scan. “I was constantly worried because the doctors were taking so long, and they kept calling someone into the room,” Jolene explained. “Then they informed me that I was expecting twins.” I can’t believe what I’m hearing. It’s a lovely thing. “
When she was told that she was pregnant with twins for the second time, she welcomed her well because she had such a feeling. They were happy when they heard the news.
“We were in amazement when we found out it was twins for the third time, and the doctor was equally as surprised as we were,” Jolene said. “In 25 years, he had never seen a mother have three sets of twins,” he claimed.
All her pregnancies had been simple, just because she was at work made it a little difficult for her to move.
It was difficult having two sets of twins after giving birth to Abigail and Andrew, but twins were all we knew, so it felt like it grew easier with each set. We knew how to deal with the situation. I was certain it couldn’t be another set of twins after falling pregnant for the third time. I assumed there would be only one child. ”
Doctors have told her that she has a hyperactive uterus that produces two eggs at once and therefore she gives birth to twins. But she has learned and accepted her fate.
“Each child has their distinct personality, and despite being twins, they each have their own set of friends,” Jolene explained. “My favorite part is watching them develop and mature. It brings a smile to my face. ”
Raising six children for parents was quite difficult because they require a lot of dedication.
“I do at least six loads of laundry each week, so it’s sometimes difficult to keep up with everything,” Jolene says. However, all of the kids are quite close and get along swimmingly. I adore my family and wouldn’t want it any other way. ”
