While on the topic of coincidences and twins. A mummy in Scotland gave birth to twin girls after having two sets of twin boys who are now 12 and 14 respectively! None of her twins are identical. It is after all a medical fact that if you have had a history of fraternal twins, you’re likely to have twins yet again. Age is another factor in getting twins, the older you are, the higher the chances.
Karen Rodgers, 41, beat the odds of 500,00 to 1. She said upon discovering she was pregnant with twins for the third time: “It never crossed my mind that it would be twins again but I’m absolutely delighted.”

They understand more and I’m going to need a lot of help from them.”
Dad, Colin Rodger, 44 said: “I think the girls are going to have five dads with the boys looking out for them too, and it will be a frightening gauntlet for any boyfriend to run.”
