Teenager Is Mother To Two Sets Of Twins Born 21 Months Apart After Falling Pregnant At 17 Despite Being On Birth Control

This teenager is literally seeing double after she had TWO sets of twins – in 21 months.

Maggie Rojas, from Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, now 19, was 17 when she fell pregnant despite being on the contraceptive pill. She welcomed Lola and Kenny Jr in March 2019, with high school sweetheart Kenrrik.

And the pair were just getting used to life as new parents when she fell pregnant for a second time – with her second set of twins.

Jewel and Krystal arrived last month – 21 months after their siblings – and the family are getting to grips with having four babies, all under two, in the same one-bedroom house.

But Lola and Kenny Jr, now 22 months old, are already proving to be great little helpers to their parents, doting on their younger siblings.

Maggie said: ‘My initial reaction to the second set of twins was a combination of shock and happiness, but also a bit scared.

‘The thought of another two seemed very difficult.’

‘It’s constantly messy here now, no matter how much I clean. Always busy and loud and not a moment of quiet, also major lack of sleep.

‘Lola loved both babies and is constantly trying to help with them – she brings me bottles and pacifiers and tries to hold them, we help her because she is too little.

‘Kenny didn’t pay any attention to them the first month but lately he’s cuddled up next to them if they were crying and has brought me pacifiers and tried to help bottle feed them.’

Maggie was on the birth control pill when she fell pregnant with her first set of fraternal twins – which has a less than 1 per cent chance of occurring.

She was just 17 and five months into dating now-husband Kenrrik, and did not know she was pregnant until she was three months gone.

Maggie said: ‘I was a twin myself but my brother didn’t make it, which was the same for my mother.

Her water unexpectedly broke when she was 34 weeks along, and Lola and Kenny Jr were born on March 17 2019, weighing 4lbs each.

Maggie said: ‘It was one of the most terrifying moments of my life, not knowing what would happen with them but fortunately they weren’t in the NICU for too long.

‘I remember when I finally got to hold my son I was talking with another dad whose child had been born on the same day as mine who was really excited about getting to touch him for the first time.

‘It put a lot of things into perspective.’

In August 2019, when the babies were six months old the couple got married.

She said: ‘The first time everyone reacted very badly because I was underage and unmarried at the time.

‘My grandmother is still quite judgemental now, but she loves the twins and is actually gifting us our new house.

Not long after their wedding, they started trying for another baby – expecting to add one more to their brood.

Maggie had only been trying for a baby for a month when she got the positive test.

She said: ‘I was really shocked, because I really believed I would have one baby this time.

‘It took me two weeks past a missed period to get even a faint positive test so I was sure there wasn’t two.

‘I think my husband was already prepared and when I told him. He said, “Well we will have to get more twins gear”. He was very calm.

The stay-at-home mother gave birth to her second set of fraternal twins, Jewel and Krystal, on December 16, 2020.

 

She was 36 weeks and six days along, and the twins weighed 5lbs 5oz and 5lbs 1oz respectively.
