Aria and Skylar Morgan-Tropris clung to each other when they were ᴅᴇʟɪᴠᴇʀᴇᴅ by caesarean section, 10 weeks early. The twins were born to Kyran Troised and Ryan Morgan from Staines, Middlesᴇx. In the photo shared by the couple, the ɪᴅᴇɴᴛɪᴄᴀʟ twins can be seen clutching each other – in the exact spot they were holding in their mother’s Wᴏᴍʙ just moments before.
A relative of Kyran and Ryan offered to act as a Sᴜʀʀᴏɢᴀᴛᴇ for the couple, and at week six they discovered they weren’t expecting one but two children. However, at 20 weeks, the twins were diagnosed with TTTS – twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome – and the couple ғᴇᴀʀed they would lose a child. The Pʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ wOᴍᴀɴ was rushed to the hospital the same day for laser ablation and was successful. Then on November 23 – 10 weeks before the February due date – the Gɪʀʟs arrived happy and healthy.
But another blow came when Kyran tested positive for Covid a day after giving birth – so new fathers were forced to isolate themselves from their children. Kyran, deputy director at a preschool, said: “We are heartbroken that we can’t be there with the children, but the staff are truly amazing and they keep us updated with pictures and videos every day. day.”
After five weeks in the hospital, the twins went home for Gifts Day, Kyran calling their return home ‘the best Christmas present they could ask for.’ Tᴇᴀʀs, and jam packed full of emotions. It really challenged us, we felt every emotion. We obviously went in there thinking we were having a baby but at week six we found out it was actually twins, which was an amazing sʜᴏᴄᴋ. ”
