  • Lol I know this is old I’m a new sub… but yeah Jack whatever u said u were wrong… you’ll live an easier life if you just accept that you’re wrong all the time ��������������

  • The highest rate of twinning for an ethnic group is found in the Yoruba people in West Africa. Since one of the most common ethnic backgrounds of slaves in the trans-Atlantic slave trade was Yoruba, it makes sense that African-Americans would have a high rate of twinning.

  • My mom has a twin brother and they look nothing alike! And I’m also a twin like her with a brother, we else look nothing alike:)

  • Hispanic are least likely??? I’m looking at me family union and we got like 6 members that are twins (´∀`*) my grandpa a twin my mom gave birth to twins my sister had twins I’m not sure if I even want twins I’m to young ;;

  • I like the fact that you say WE SHOULD LIVE IN THE JOY! It can be hard at times to focus on the positive but we should focus on that ��thanks

  • I have always wanted 1 daughter and 1 son. If i can have them both at the same time so i will never have to go through pregnancy a 2nd time, that would be great. Twins run in my family though. It skips a generation and usually the oldest child has the twins. My grandfather was a twin and my dad was his oldest kid. I am my dads oldest kid so chances are i will probably have twins one day since that is a thing in my family.

  • Thank you so much <3 I'm 23 weeks with my girls and and bursting with love already. I've loved following your journey and you are such a power force. Well done Mumma. So excited for what's to come x
