A Mom Has Given Birth To Her Third Consecutive Twin, Meaning She’s Had Six Babies In Five Years

Every child born is a precious gift from God. So it was a big surprise when a mother gave birth to her third set of twins in a row, meaning she had six children within five years.

Jolene Mckee, 32, and her husband, Andrew, 33, from Brooklyn, New York, are now a family of eight after recently welcoming their third set of twins, Aiden and Jaiden, who are now three-months-old. The mother-of-six says it has been a blessing to get six children from three ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴄɪᴇs and since twins are all that they know, she has felt more like a pro each time.

Jolene and Andrew now have Peyton and Paige, five, Abigail and Andrew, three, as well as their newest additions, Aiden and Jaiden. Jolene said: “I never envisioned myself with a big family. I thought I’d only have maybe one or two kids. But it is such a blessing that I have had six babies from just three ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴄɪᴇs. When I discovered I was ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ with twins for the third time, I just fully accepted that this must be what I was appointed to do.”

Before Jolene became ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ with her first set of twins, she had suffered from a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ three months prior. “I was so sᴄᴀʀᴇᴅ to go to the doctors for the scan after going through the ᴘᴀɪɴ of ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀʏɪɴɢ. I was ᴘᴀɴɪᴄᴋɪɴɢ the whole time because they were taking so long and they called someone else in the room,” Jolene said. “And then they told me I was expecting twins. I couldn’t believe it. It was beautiful.”

Two years later, Jolene discovered that she was ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ again and that she was expecting another set of twins. She recalls having an inkling that she was ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ with another set of twins, but said she was still sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ when the news was confirmed, with her husband also in shock. She said: “I thought it would definitely be just one baby. So when we found out it was twins for the third time we were in sʜᴏᴄᴋ and the doctor was just as sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ as us. He said that in 25 years he had never seen a woman have three sets of twins.”

Jolene admits that, after giving birth to Abigail and Andrew, it was challenging having two sets of twins. However, raising twins was all that they knew, so it felt easier with each set they gave birth to. The couple said that organizing with six kids is challenging and that it takes a lot to enforce a good schedule.

“It’s sometimes hard to keep up with all the laundry too. I do at least six loads of washing each week. But all the kids are really close and get on very well. I love our family and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
