A mum has given birth to her third set of twins in a row, meaning she has had six babies in the last five years.
Jolene Mckee, 32, and her husband Andrew, 33, from Brooklyn, New York, are now a family of eight after recently welcoming their third set of twins, Aiden and Jaiden, who are now almost 6 months old.
The mother-of-six says it’s a “blessing” to have six children after three pregnancies. As they have grown accustomed to caring for twins, she feels more competent each time.
Peyton and Paige, 5; Abigail and Andrew, 3; and Aiden and Jaiden, newborns, are the couple’s children.
“I never imagined myself having a big family. I thought maybe I would only have one or two kids,” Jolene said. “I feel so lucky to have had all three possible combinations: two twin girls, twins a boy and a girl and now our two twin boys. It’s perfect.”
Jolene had a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ three months before she got pregnant with her first twins.
“I was so scared to go to the doctor for the ultrasound after going through the pain of a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ. I freaked out because they were taking a long time and called someone else into the room,” she added. “Then they told me I was expecting twins. I could not believe it. It was wonderful.”
