Today in Twinning: Twin sisters are each pregnant with their second sets of twins
A pair of twin sisters from Utah are showing the world what it means to be #twinning. Kerri Bunker and Kelli Wall live in the same town. They’re both teachers at the same school. They married a pair of best friends. And now they’re both pregnant with their second set of twins.
Our minds are officially blown.
Kerri and Kelli have each struggled with fertility issues and turned to in vitro fertilization for their first sets of twins. Kelli gave birth to Madison and McKell four years ago. Then Kerri and her husband were thrilled to have their own set of twins, Kole and Hallie, just a year later. They also have a two-year-old little girl named Sadie.
That was already a serious amount of twinsies for one family. Then this summer, things went to a whole new level. Kelli discovered she was pregnant again in June. On the day Kelli got the good news, Kerri decided to take a pregnancy test too, even though doctors had told her that getting pregnant would be very unlikely without medical assistance. Surprise, surprise! Kerri was also pregnant.
Still, neither of them expected twins (again). Medically, all signs pointed to a single birth for both of them. But Kelli’s ultrasound has proven otherwise. She’s definitely pregnant with twins. Soon afterward, Kerri found out she’s having twins, too.
Kerri told their local news station, “It was just like one shock after another all summer long.”
Both sets of twins are due in March, and now that the numerous shocks have worn off, the sisters are super excited about their situation. They both (obviously) love having twins and being twins themselves. Kerri told KSL News, “…I always felt like my twin sister and I had a special bond. And we’ve always kind of looked out for one another, and I thought ‘oh wouldn’t that be fun to have our kids experience that same thing.'”
Kelli of course agrees. “I think everyone needs a set, just because truthfully there’s nothing better than having a best friend with you all the time.” All of the Awwwwwww!
We kind of love the idea of built-in besties. Congrats to Kerri and Kelli! And is it just me, or does everyone see a joint baby shower in their future?
