Four special boys are born – level 2

Four special boys are born – level 2

27-02-2013 06:00

It was a special Valentine's Day present. A Texas woman delivered four babies on the 14th of February and they were two sets of identical twins.

The four babies were born in Houston. The parents say that they feel like they hit the jackpot. They are very happy. The chances for two sets of identical twins to be born are actually somewhere in the range of 1 in 70 million. Two boys shared one placenta and the two other boys shared another placenta.

Interesting words: identical (the same), range (the limits), placenta (part of a mother which feeds the unborn baby).
