Woman Gives Birth To Another Set Of Rare Identical Twins Against 10-Million-To-One Odds

A 27-year-old mother from Colorado, Casey Saunders, was blown away when an ultrasound revealed that she’s pregnant with another set of twins. At first, she thought that technician was just kidding about seeing two heartbeats since the odds of it were highly unlikely. It turns out, that life’s full of surprises. Last year, on December 1 she gave birth to beautiful twin baby girls.

Casey had identical twin boys Hayden and Cameron ten years ago when she was 17. The boys were really excited when their mother broke the news of being pregnant again. Her partner Eugene Goree took the news very well too. ‘He was surprised but really excited from the beginning.’ she told Daily Mail.

The chances for this woman to have another set of twins were around a .0014 percent, but that’s not all. It was later revealed that the twins she was expecting are monoamniotic monochorionic, meaning that the babies developed a shared placenta and amniotic sac. Chances of this occurrence were less than one in 10 million. Even though there was a high risk of umbilical cord entanglement and they were born 8 weeks premature, now Maya and Laia are healthy and doing very well.Check out the photos of this big happy family!
