For baby sisters Rowan and Isla Rodger, who have just become the third set of twins in their family, it’s double the brotherly love.
The girls, who were born two minutes apart, have Lewis and Kyle, 14, and Finn and Jude, 12, to spoil them – and help them through the trials of being a twin.
Parents Karen and Colin Rodger were told the odds of having three sets of twins were 500,000-1 when they found out they were expecting.
Mrs Rodger, 41, was convinced the doctors were right to think it was a rather unlikely prospect. ‘It never crossed my mind that it would be twins again but I’m absolutely delighted,’ she said.The couple from Langbank, Renfrewshire, decided not to find out the sex of the babies before they arrived Hospital.
Mrs Rodger said: ‘I was convinced I was having two boys. I’m still getting my head around the fact that there will be more girls in the house – people to steal my sparkly shoes and make-up.
Mrs Rodger will be counting on the boys too when her husband is away from home on work all of next month.
She said: ‘It is daunting but because the boys are a bit older, it makes it a bit easier.
‘They understand more and I’m going to need a lot of help from them.’
