"Our miracle babies were born! They decided they were rare enough statistically that they should just go ahead and have their own birthdays too. Roxi Layla was born Tuesday night 12/19 at 7:49pm and was joined by her sister, Rebel Laken, Wednesday morning 12/20 at 6:09am," shared Kelsey.

"Our team at UAB was incredible and we couldn’t have had a better experience! I can’t wait to share the entire birth story with you guys! While we are all home now, we will take the time bond, recover, and enjoy the holidays!," she added.

According to Kelsey, her pregnancy in each of the two uteruses was a 1 in 50 million odds. Interestingly, doctors had estimated Christmas Day to be the due date but in a delight for the family, the babies were born in time to give them bigger joy during the celebrations.

In her youth, Kelsey was told that if she was able to conceive, she would probably have preterm labor or miscarriage.
