A Texas mother had double the double joy this year when she gave birth to four babies on Valentine’s Day. You’re thinking, cool, quadruplets. What’s so special about that? How does that make this piece of news any different from other “quadruplet birth” reports?

The difference is that 36-year-old Tressa Montalvo gave birth to four babies as in, two sets of identical twin boys. Which is, as they would say, an event with slimmer odds than winning the lottery. To be more precise, a one in 70 million chance!

Tressa Manuel


Plus, Tressa and her husband, Manuel, weren’t using fertility drugs. They were only hoping for a brother or sister for their two-year old son, Memphis.

When asked about the boys’ name, Tressa said, “We tried to stick to the A-B-C-D theme when naming them. We didn’t expect it, we were trying for just one and we were blessed with four. We planned the pregnancy – I guess we just succeeded a little too much”. Now, you peeps ready to hear their names?

Ace Blaine Cash Dylan

Tressa’s and Manuel’s sons were named Ace and Blaine, who were born at 8:51am, and Cash and Dylan, who followed a minute later. A-B-C-D.
