Texas woman has two sets of identical twins in one day

(Reuters) - A Texas mother had a one-in-70-million kind of Valentine's Day this year when she gave birth to two sets of identical twin boys, a Houston hospital announced on Monday.

The four brothers were delivered at 31 weeks to Tressa Montalvo, 36, via Cesarean section at The Woman's Hospital of Texas in Houston, according to a news release from the hospital.

Tressa and Manuel Montalvo Jr. were not using any fertility drugs and had just hoped for a little brother or sister for their 2-year-old son, Memphis, according to the release.

"We planned the pregnancy - I guess we just succeeded a little too much!" said Tressa Montalvo, quoted in the release.

2. OMG. I know a guy who grew up like Memphis - parents had quadruplets and they ruled the house!

He felt like the odd man out. His parents also did not expect two or four children. It turned out twins were common in his great grandparents' generation in Mexico, but they hadn't kept up with that part of the family. I see very exciting and exhausting days ahead for all, and blessings. May they all thrive and have great lives.
