(Fremont County, Wyo.) – Nearly 4 percent of all U.S. babies are born in sets of two or more, and most of those are twins, according to What To Expect’s website. But, what are the chances of two sisters having twins at nearly the same time?! We’re not sure, but we know it’s rare.
That’s exactly what happened to sisters, Viola and Samantha Oldman of Arapahoe. They each recently gave birth to twins just two days apart.
The first set of twin boys were born on Thursday, April 6 2017 to the proud parents of Viola Oldman and Thurlo Jenkins Jr. of Arapahoe. Jaxson Hi Sís Jenkins was born at 12:35 p.m. weighing 6 lbs 4 oz. His twin brother Jace Ho No’ Jenkins was born at 12:41 p.m. weighing 6 lbs.
The second set of twin girls were born just two days later on Saturday, April 8, 2017 to Samantha Oldman. Aubree Rayne Oldman was born at 3:15 p.m. weighing 5 lbs 7 oz. Her twin sister, Audrey Oldman, was born at 3:18 p.m. weighing 6 lbs 12 oz.
“There aren’t enough words to explain how blessed we are,” said Viola Oldman. “Our family has been the biggest supporters and they are overjoyed.” Viola said going through a twin pregnancy alongside her sister was an unbelievable feeling. This was Viola’s second pregnancy and Samantha’s first. “We supported each other the whole time,” she said. “We experienced a lot together and I’m so proud of how great she did.”
The babies and moms are all happy and healthy. “Our family is going to be busy,” Viola concluded.
