Mum surprised to give birth to third set of consecutive twins – now has 10 kids

A mum has been left shocked after giving birth to a rare set of naturally conceived fraternal twins – for the third time in 10 years.

Kimberly Alarcon, 37, and her husband, John, 43, are now proud parents to Kenzy and Kenzley, but are also the duo behind Brittney, 17, Sarah, 13, Hunter, 10, twins Zachary and Zoey, six, and twins Oliver and Olivia, four.

They are also fostering a nephew named King, three.

But what makes the trio of twins so rare is that they were all from two different eggs fertilised by different sperm cells.

Only 2% of pregnancies account for just one set of these – so the trio of twins is very rare.

The mother of 10 told local news outlets: “We were done at three singles.

“It was shocking because, to be honest with you, we never planned – shocking every time.”

This latest set of twins was not an easy ride for the New Yorker.

For Kenzy and Kenzley were actually triplets, but sadly one was lost early on into the pregnancy.

And during that time, Kimberly had blood pressure issues, two oral surgeries and even broke her ankle, and her basement also flooded – twice.

He recalled: “I felt like I was pregnant for a year straight, and it was stuff happening one after another.

“I’m just grateful that we made it. I just thank God. That’s all I can do.

“We're not always super-mum.

“You’re not going to be perfect, you’re going to mess up and do things that are wrong. Breathe, take it one day at a time and you’re going to get through it.

“All my kids are a blessing, no matter how many, and they’re not perfect kids.

“We’re not the perfect family – we have good days and bad days, and we argue, we have miscommunications, but we’re a family.

“My kids are my world, my kids changed me and made me who I am.”

She did not clarify whether or not she would be having more children after this.
