Kicker – Hitting the twin lottery

NICK EICHER, HOST: A woman from south Florida did something pretty amazing over the past year. How amazing? You ask. 

Well, here’s how amazing: doctors told her she had a better chance of winning the lottery than she had of doing what she did. 

Back in March 2019, Alexzandria Wolliston gave birth to twin boys, Malakhi and Mark.

That’s just the half of it.

Wolliston told television station WPTV she was counting her blessings, but she had more counting to do!

WOLLISTON: I never thought, like you know, I would have two.

Never thought she’d have two. Meaning, two sets of twins—four boys in all—in the same year!

Nine months after Malakhi and Mark were born, she gave birth to Kaylen and Kaleb, her second set of twins, on December 27th—just made the year-end deadline.

WOLLISTON: I feel like I hit the twin lottery!

“I come from a big family,” she said. “I knew I’d be able to handle it.”
