In June 2020, Alana Christensen gave birth to twin boys named Moon and Beck. However, the following year, she learned she was expecting twin boys once again.
In August 2022, the 25-year-old gave birth to twin girls who were given the names Cove and Gracie.
Alana reports that when she and her husband Cole, 31, learned they were expecting twins for the second time, they were both shocked.
The mother of four says, “I was astonished, worried, but excited.”
When we had our first ultrasound in Las Vegas while I was away, my husband made the joke “let’s just have one, just one.”
When we later learned, I immediately said, “Oh my gosh, you’ve got to be kidding me—it’s two again.”
Alana was shocked.
Alana was shocked, but it’s important to note that having twins a second time is possible; after the first set, the chances increase by four, or one in 12.
The Winston-Salem, North Carolina, couple claims that their family was also shocked by the news.
After the initial ultrasound, Alana adds, “I was at my mother’s house for Christmas and she was waiting at the door wondering if it was one or two.”
When she and my sister learned the truth, they screamed.
“My mother made a joke about how difficult the next 60 years of my life would be.
Alana, a former nanny, says she has always wanted children but i acknowledges that raising two sets of twins is challenging.
“For instance, if we go to Costco, I have to put the boys in the cart and the girls in the carrier.
The boys don’t like to sit still or remain in our small area, so attending church is challenging. They end up racing up and down the corridors, so Cole and I had to split up. I’m with the females, he’s with the boys.
She continues, “In my experience, having a second pair of twins has seemed simpler since you know what to expect.”
