A 29-year-old woman in Kazakhstan reportedly gave birth to her twins almost three months apart.
According to Women’s Health, Liliya Konovalova welcomed a baby girl named Liya on May 24, but her son, Maxim, didn’t arrive until earlier this month, on Aug. 9.
“My son was in no rush to come out into the world,” Konovalova told RT, describing him as a “true Bogatyr” — a warrior figure from Russian folk tales.
Women’s Health reported that Liya was born premature at 25 weeks and weighed under 2 lbs. Meanwhile, Maxim weighed 6 lbs., 6 oz. when he was born 11 weeks later.
Photos of the proud mother and her twins were shared in a Facebook post from the Kazakh Health Ministry. In one sweet snap, Konovalova can be seen smiling while holding one of her children.
According to Women’s Health, Konovalova had her twins so far apart because she has uterus didelphys, or a double uterus.
