- Wolliston, who is a single mother, gave birth to her first set of twins in March 2019. She welcomed the second set in December 2019.

- The mother of twins already has a three-year-old daughter and has since opened a GoFundMe asking for help.

After welcoming a set of twins on March 13, a single mother in Florida identified as Alexzandria Wolliston welcomed another set of twins on December 27, 2019.

Wolliston believes the boys were a gift after recently learning that her paternal and maternal grandmothers had lost twin boys at birth.

According to a report by CNN, Wolliston gave birth to her first set of twin boys, Mark and Malakhi, in March 2019 and second set, Kaylen and Kayleb, in December 2019. All of them were conceived naturally.

The last set of twins, Kaylen and Kaleb, were born prematurely at 34 weeks.

"I always say that I feel like my grandmothers gave me their kids because two sets of twins and their twins passed away. I feel like they just sent them down for me," she said.

The 25-year-old said prior to giving birth to Mark and Malakhi, she was unaware twins ran in both sides of her family.

"When my mom told me, and my aunties and uncles on my dad's side told me, I was like shocked," she said.

The single mother of twins, who also has three-year-old girl, said she learned in June 2019 that she was expecting her second set of twins.

"I never thought that it could happen that fast and it did. I was worried about how my body would be able to handle a back-to-back twin pregnancy," she said.

Wolliston disclosed her doctor told her she had better chances of winning the lottery than having two sets of twins and delivering them in the same year.

Her first set of twins were considered high risk because they were in the same sac using only one placenta.

However, the second set of twins each had their own sac and she was only required to visit her doctor once a month throughout her pregnancy. She has since opened a GoFundMe page asking for help to raise $10,000 (KSh 1.1 million) but not everyone is happy about the idea.
