Triplets can occur from the division of one zygote into two, with one dividing again, producing identical triplets, or they can come from two zygotes, one dividing into a set of identical twins, and the second zygote developing as a single fraternal sibling, or from three separate zygotes.

  • I had 2 sets of twins under 3. I had my tubes tied the day after my second set were born. I was terrified of the thought of having a third set!

  • I have two sets of twins and one singleton but they think the last set of twins was triplets and I lost one at 9 weeks. Guess some of us are just naturally blessed x

  • 2:36 PAUSE THIS PART �� why do i see the parents & 6 “sons”…i thought they had twins… Then triplets… 5. Who is the 6th ‘boy’ in this family group “paused pic”?!? Someone is photobombing! ��

  • Identical twins don’t run in families. There is nothing genetic about identical twins. Women can inherit the ability to release multiple eggs at one time, leading to twins that are not identical and come from separate eggs.

  • So who is that couple in the back-middle of the whole family picture? (at end of video)? Or did the mom and dad have a sixth child?

  • Omg when I saw her eyes i was like damm! I didn’t know they made them like that looking like ice queen but your beautiful girl and I’m happy for your twins

  • The mother seeing the ultrasound: OMG it’s so beautiful!!!

    What everyone else sees:……………………..

  • my son’s ex fiance went on to marry someone else down the road. she had one son, then identical twin boys, then was pregnant with triplet girls. sadly she lost them but did go on to have another single girl. just amazing how often it occurs 1, then 2 then 2 again or 3. thought it was rare but holy cow 4 sets of twins? thats nuts. I had 4 kids in 5 yrs all singles but can’t imagine 9 under age of 7. phew makes me tired now just thinking about it. LOL

  • To all who reads this, I just want to remind you of God’s good news message of Salvation. Acts 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” Guys, God loves you so much but he hates sin. The Bible says unless you repent you will perish in hell… hell is real.That’s no place to spend eternity. Salvation is free, all you need to do is accept it.Praying for you. Love & Peace

  • This really concerns me because black maternal death rate is extremely high and to continue to have multiple children at one time is a little selfish to me!!!! Because to each it’s own!!!!

  • At least they saw the twins. I didn’t find out I was having twins until I was 20 weeks!!! Also males can only pass the twin gene down. Basically women are the ones who “activate the gene”

  • It’s cool that your Dr just did it for fun. Mine did it at my 1st appointment because she said that my belly didn’t feel or “look” quite right for the dates. We made the same discovery.

  • I have a friend who had twins. She got pregnant again and had twins. The doctor told her if you get pregnant again you WILL have twins again. She stopped.

  • Hello mam aap ke beta beti huye mem mei baat baat puchna chati hu bche ki eyes green ya blue kya khye ki mere beby ki v eyes green ya blue ho please help me

  • ❤️❤️��������congratulations.regards from a Iraqi /Danis woman from Denmark.��������❤️. I was also pregnant to time with twins but I born just one ☝️.he is 22 now.

  • How in the heck did you keep this a secret for so long!?? I need friends like y’all!! Congratulations!! Can you do a video of the symptoms?

  • There was a family in my former hometown in Utah who had a baby girl. Two years later twins, two years after that, another set of twins. Two years after that she had a set of triplets, and finally four years later one daughter. She was amazing and ended up writing a book called, “FAMILIES ARE FOREVER….if I can just make it through today!”

  • Hold up… did you used to make videos about guinea pigs and rabbits and stuff??? I used to watch you all the time way back in the day and now this pops up on my recommended?

  • I love these shows with multiples. And now a multiples show with black people ( I loved the other show with the black multiples). I love that they are organized with thier kids, make them clean up after themsleves, make the time to teach them important life skills. The check in was great!! The lady on sweet home sextuplets stay losing her babies! And the parents love each other, black love is always great to see on TV. My only concern is the mothers health and the health of her babies. I know they want as many kids as God will give them but they were so worried about seperating from their childern and the health of their babies, I hope they don’t have any more. Their family is perfect as is. Them little girls crying broke my heart.

  • Plzzz pray for me too
    6 years of marriage and i still dont have any child ��
    Plz plz God place one merciful eye on me too ������ Ameen

  • Most likely some of the children are fraternal and not identical. In the promo video she doesn’t specify those detail. Some women releases more than one egg per cycle. Commonly, woman release one egg per cycle. identical multiples are split from one egg, hence why the children will look, yes, you guessed it, identical. Fraternal multiples are not split from one egg, but rather each egg is “fertilized” individually. They will not look identical, but rather look different There’s also that whole “multiples run in my family” variable to consider. But it this rate, I’m leaning towards her releasing multiple eggs per cycle. I’m guessing in the episodes she’ll mention how she’s conceiving multiples, multiple times.

  • Yea we have a 6 years and two sets of naturally conceived twins. First set is 4. Second set is 1. We want to try again and are curious to see if it’ll happen again!

  • Me and my girlfriend had triplets( Two beautiful baby boys and a girl,my angel). It’s been 7 months and boy o boy; we don’t need to turn on the TV for music. My babies can turn on their music anytime.
    Also I love my boys but my little girl is special, I’ve always wanted a baby girl and God blessed me with one. These three babies are my lucky charm.

  • A lotta y’all white folks is racist and it shows y’all are mad because this family is black but won’t bat an eye at the Duggar’s ������‍♀️

  • This family is extremely disturbing. The mother claims she has experience in early childhood education, which I sincerely doubt. As an educator with three degrees, the probability of successfully educating many children at home, without them having the experience of social interaction with peers is oblique. This mother is using having children in the same fashion as cats and dogs as a method to secure a marriage. There is absolutely no way in a time of modern age, a woman would subject herself to being nothing more than a baby factory, unless she doesn’t have any professional self worth. She is doing nothing but teaching her daughter’s and son’s to either have a bunch of kids, or not to, based on the experience they endure. Unless, you are a billionaire you can not provide culture experiences to 11,12, 13, or 14 children. It’s just not finally possible, mentally or socially achievable. We are not living in the 18th or 19th century, when viable birth control wasn’t an option. I only watched this show because a colleague brought it to my attention. Teachers across the nation are in dismay. Because eventually we get these dysfunctional kids. For all you ideologist people who find having 14 kids a blessing, think about how much quality time you can devote to them, feeding them, clothing them, educating them, guiding them, motivating them, encouraging them, sending them to college, putting them into extracurricular activities, and simply being there for them. It take more than love to care for children, they need food, clothing, shelter, and proper structured education I don’t understand the purpose of this show, other than to exploit an uneducated black family.

  • Genes can completely skip generations so maybe you had great great great grandparents who were twins. Twins run on my bfs side and my uncle has a set of twin boys as well but we only popped out one little nugget lol. In my hometown there’s these 2 twins who both only had a singleton pregnancy, crazyyyy how things work

  • omg youre eyes are so stunning!! my dad has the same color eyes, mine are very pale too but its like super pale green with a dark ring around my iris, when im angry theyre dark green/blue

  • That’s a brave woman getting pregnant again after carrying a quintuplet pregnancy. I hope that she and the triplets are doing well. They seem like such a loving family.

  • Fraternal twins run in my family. My grandma was a twin and she had a brother. I also have fraternal twin cousins ( both boys) that are younger than me. It skips a generation in this family which I have to admit I’m happy about. I don’t think I could handle a set of twins in addition to the children we already have.

  • This show is one of the best TLC has come out with in a very long time. All those kids are adorable! Do hope there is a next season. Worth staying late to watch.

  • ☆☆☆ There were 3 sets of twins in my grandmother’s family. INN early19 hundreds only to children survived, neither each other’s twin.

  • I feel like a loser! I’m so overwhelmed and helpless and hopeless some days with 2 kids�� they have a kindergarten class at home 24/7

  • Would love to know how families with multiple multiples do it??? Where is the advice video for similar families lol I’ve got 6, 6 and under, that’s two sets of twins and need some guidance

  • I don’t know….when do you stop having babies you don’t encourage having multiple it is so dangerous for they mother and the children and I don’t know why the doctors are not telling her how risky it is to have so many babies

  • Congratulations on your beautiful blessings!! A houseful of babies is ALWAYS a blessing! No matter how chaotic it may get over the next several years, I pray that you will always remember that God has entrusted you with this beautiful brood of babies, because He knew that you would do a great job at raising them. Sending much love and an abundance of beautiful blessings to all of you. ��
    Greetings from the fantabulous Oregon coast! ������

  • Not gonna lie that first episode caught me up in my feelings. Hearing how he had to tell her their baby didn’t survive. Not only are their children so loves, they are also teaching them how to be successful in life.

  • One of my best friends is the last set of THREE twins. Their parents had three twinsies, and three spares. IN THE 50s and early 60s, so no science intervention.

  • So very happy for y’all! And super happy that you were joyous with this second set of twin blessings; thank you for being His faithful and trusting children, and not talking about them like they would be a burden. So many people would love to be a part of this special group! God bless all of you!

  • those saying 11 this 11 that. its all about saving. the oldest is a social straight A student same as i know the other children will be 9/10 they wont have to worry about college because of scholarships! they don’t have to buy them 11 separate cars or phone bills plenty of people have a family plan. they mentioned that the husband is a real estate investor and they wouldn’t have so many kids if they knew they wouldn’t be able to provide!

  • Seen the NEW program #1 in my book GOOD family values and very Caring this family is a true loving family the parent’s and kids all show it 100%.������. The other large family programs have Never been or will not even come close. The Derricos are the SUPPER family �� cjd enjoy ��������take care

  • I live in Michigan and I have two sets of twins too!! Let me guess the questions you get. Are those multiples? Are they identical? Did you use fertility treatments? Did you have them naturally? Are you going to have more children? Are you done now? ������ I remember when all four were babies and toddlers I couldn’t get in and out of anywhere with them because I would get stopped and people would ask questions. �� Beautiful family!! Just beautiful! I promise it gets easier! We bought a small farm once everyone was over ten years old and now we have horses and chickens! We grow lots of our own food and we homeschool the kids. God bless you!! It’s an exhausting road, but Whalen they’re all teenagers, you’ll have lots of helping hands. ��❤️����

  • I love this! I was extremely shocked to learn I was having twins also. First set in my family. They actually came 6 weeks early and on their dads birthday. They’ll be 3 in June

  • My first ultrasound was exactly like this, we found two little shining gems!! I still have the video of me laughing out with happiness when the doctor comfired that we are having twins ��

  • The mom is so pretty it’s unreal. Like how do you have that good a body after so many multiple pregnancies? I don’t have any kids and my body doesn’t look even close to that good.

  • Ok I thought my mom was the only one this happened to. My mom had three sets of twins. We are all two years apart. She had 2girls, 2boys, then a boy and girl. Every which-way you can have a twin. So 3 girls and 3 boys. She had no pregnacy meds. We were all naturally conceived. There was never a dull moment growing up. She went back to school and became a nurse. My mother raised all six of us by herself. Fast forward… We are all grown now with children of our own. Only one of us had twins.(lol glad it wasn’t me). My mom is a nurse first as a labor & delivery nurse(omg..for 20yrs)and now he has changed to dialysis nurse.

  • Their Saturday morning are indeed ruined���������� love this story…always wanted twins but God knew I would probably lose my marbles…lol

  • Your children are BEAUTIFUL! God has blessed you. I’m having my second set of girl/boy twins in two months. They make #5 & 6. All naturally conceived. My husband says God only gives him a son with a daughter LOL. My son needs a brother. His 3 sisters are bossing him around daily LOL.

  • I’ve tried to watch the show, but the space is too small for the number of people and it’s just chaos. I feel overstimulated. Good luck to you.

  • I’m 1of 3 sets of twins, plus 5 singles. We had a wonderful childhood. We travelled all over the world and lived in many different countries.

  • Damn I wanted a set of twins sooooo bad! I had 6 of my own singletons and 2 sets of twins for 2 beautiful families. A set of identical girls and a set of fraternal twins, a boy and a girl. I can’t lie and say I wasn’t jealous but it was the best experience of my life and I wouldn’t change it for the world. As a matter of fact I’ll be starting meds for a 3rd surrogacy in the next 2 months. I’d love to carry triplets! If they get enough embryos we will be implanting 4! Wish those amazing dads luck!

  • Am a twin and my elder sister has twins my three cousins all of them have two sets of twins and one has triplets so there’s a high possibility of me having twins

    Any husband to marry? ������������

  • Thanks for all the amazing comments and those of you who have decided to subscribe for more content from our family! We love our MFM Clan!

  • How cute!! I’m not sure I could’ve kept it a secret though. How exciting!! Two sets of twins, WOW!!
    I have twin granddaughters, and they are a handful I can’t imagine……. Lots of FUN at Christmas!! Lots of FUN everyday!! ♡♡ God bless you all!!

  • Christ Hospital is AWESOME!!
    I tried to have a child of mine there. Didn’t make it… Lol
    I had my daughter on McMillan & Reading Rd., in front of the barbershop. So needless to say. I didn’t have delivery fees… Lol
    Hope you have an AMAZING adventure with your lovely family.

  • Tum log job bhi karte ho ki nahi ����������������yaha tou ek bade mushkilo ke baad hua ��‍��‍��‍��bhagwan kare Muje bhi twins hone chahiye

  • 11:00 Congratulations! Sounds like Mario was born first. You might not want to introduce them as Mario and Marco all the time. Maybe put Marco first sometime. Just in case. I’m impressed you were able to keep that a secret. Good luck to your family.

  • I love these types of surprise videos! My family is so up in each other’s business that we literally can’t keep secrets, so I couldn’t do this, but it is fun to watch.

  • These kids are so well mannered though even though there are some ups and downs but like there like 10x more well mannered then me

  • I love your show! Its off to a great start. It amazing to see thr love, intelligence, and togetherness your family displays. My only advice i will give, is too pull out of reality TV if it comes to a point of placing a drift in your family.” Other than that! I would love yo support your family as it continues to grow�� #DDD #supportthelove

  • Except for the woman who was screaming in the beginning (don’t scream around babies!!!), EVERYONE IS SO CHILL!!!! That’s exactly what all your kids need…CHILL PARENTS!!!!

  • Sometimes I kinda wish I had had boy/girl twins. Healthy, of course. ☺ My kids are over 8 years apart and don’t even have the same dad, kinda the opposite of this. ��

  • Congratulations! My dads a triplet and I was scared I was gonna have them I went in and they pranked my partner and said what do u think 1 2 or 3?!? He freaked out until I said it’s one ����

  • Wonderful video and thank you for having a big family. My wife and I have 4 from ages 10 to 4. After 5 years of trying we finally got prayers answered. It is so AWESOME to see people still having big families. Thank you for sharing this video.


  • I watched episode 1 on TLC, my singleton daughter, she is not enjoying her youth and teenage years in life, too busy helping her mom. It’s ok, to have large family, but when you keep popping them, just bc is effing ridiculous.

  • Six kids under 5yrs old?! Dear god!
    Question: Did you want so many kids so close together, or were some of them unplanned?

  • Wow all those babies so close togrether. You guys are going to be busy, and I imagine your home will be full with a lot of fun! Congrats

  • I hope you are coping better with the similar names better than I am. I am a 4K teacher and I have a Marco and Mario in my class and I am constantly mixing them up! Congrats!

  • While I understand why you are sticking with the letter “M” for all of your children but… couldn’t you have picked a name for one of the twins that didn’t sound so much like the other one?

  • I’ve never watched a reality show. This is definitely one I’ll be watching. What an incredibly BEAUTIFUL FAMILY ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • That’s how exactly happens to me 12 years ago. I find out I was pregnant before my next period time and everything was very quick so I thought I might having twins. When we went our doctor appointment she was looking ultrasound she said everything look good and told her are sure we are not having twins?Because I was having identical twins just like your video it was only one sac she didn’t see it until I asked her. I know my husband has couple people his family has twins later on 5 years later his brother has boy/girl twins to.

  • That was fun to watch! My favorite reaction was the lady who couldn’t stop laughing and had no words. She’s a hoot!�� Beautiful Family… Congratulations!��♥️

  • So my question is why didn’t anyone say AGAIN??? Like that would be my first response is you had twins “AGAIN”????
    Like it’s not their first time so I woulda be like AGAIN

  • You and your husband smile just alike…yall will be together forever. Wonderfull suprise. Why is everyone mad that you kept it a surprise lol
