A single mother has revealed how she became a mom of four at age 21 after she welcomed two ‘miracle’ sets of twins within two years – despite being on birth control the second time she conceived.

Kaitlin Brooks, now 22, from Little Rock, Arkansas, was over the moon to discover she was expecting twins in March 2019 and she welcomed her boys, Denver and Dayton Brooks, into the world that October at the age of 19.

But the full-time mom couldn’t believe her luck when just after their first birthday she found out she was pregnant with twins again – despite being on birth control – and she gave birth to Pierce and Piper Brooks in August 2021. 

Remarkably, the mom-of-four claims that she’ll likely conceive twins each time she falls pregnant because she releases two eggs during ovulation – a process known as hyperovulation.

How Kaitlin had two sets of twins: What is hyperovoulation?  

  • The ovaries usually release just one egg per ovulation cycle, but sometimes more than one egg can mature and be released by an ovary in a process called hyperovulation, which can lead to getting pregnant with multiple babies. 
  • Multiple ovulation, or hyperovulation, occurs when both ovaries release an egg or when more than one egg is released by an ovary.

Due to this, the 22-year-old – who conceived her second set of twins while on the pill – has vowed to eventually have her tubes tied.

But for now, Kaitlin, who described herself as ‘blessed’ to have two sets of fraternal twins, said that she’s looking into becoming a surrogate to help those who are unable to conceive their own children.

Kaitlin said: ‘I had two sets of twins by the age of 21. I had my first set at 19 and second at 21.

‘I feel that what’s happened is a miracle because for the longest time I didn’t think I could get pregnant.

‘My doctor told me that every time I get pregnant it will be twins because I drop two eggs every time.

‘The boys have just turned three and the babies are one and I have four toddlers and they’re into everything.’

After having four children before the age of 22, Kaitlin decided it was too difficult for her to risk having another set. 

And although the single mom-of-four is on birth control, she has debated having her tubes tied to ensure she won’t have any more children, since the pill has failed her in the past.

‘Knowing that if I fall pregnant again I’ll have multiples again is scary because I don’t see how I could do another set.

‘I think I’m going to get my tubes tied because I don’t want to have to worry about that happening again.’

Kaitlin found out she was expecting for the first time in March 2019 and although twins run in her family, she was still ‘shocked’. 

Kaitlin said: ‘I found out that I was pregnant at five weeks and had my first ultrasound at eight weeks and it was twins.

‘I was shocked.

‘Twins do run in my family but it was way back in the day when my family had twins – my great grandmother’s sisters had twins and triplets.

‘Denver is my wild child, it seems like he doesn’t have a fear in the world.

‘Knowing that if I fall pregnant again I’ll have multiples again is scary because I don’t see how I could do another set,’ Kaitlin said 

Kaitlin had to stay in the hospital for a week after due to having postpartum preeclampsia- which is a rare condition that occurs when you have high blood pressure after childbirth 

She found out she was expecting again in November 2020, a month after the boys’ first birthday

‘Dayton is more shy and he keeps to himself more, he can be like Denver sometimes because they’re always around each other but their personalities are totally different.’

The 22-year-old said she gave birth on October 29th 2019 when she was 38 weeks pregnant.

Denver arrived first weighing 6lbs 10.5oz and his little brother Dayton followed eight minutes later weighing 6lbs 7.7oz.

Kaitlin had a great pregnancy but had to stay in the hospital for a week after due to having postpartum preeclampsia- which is a rare condition that occurs when you have high blood pressure and excess protein in your urine soon after childbirth, according to Mayo Clinic.

She found out she was expecting again in November 2020, a month after the boys’ first birthday.

Kaitlin said: ‘It was a surprise again and another shock for me.

‘I definitely didn’t think it was twins again. I found out that I was pregnant a little bit earlier on when I was three weeks and found out they were twins at six weeks.

‘I definitely didn’t think it was twins again. I found out that I was pregnant a little bit earlier on when I was three weeks and found out they were twins at six weeks,’ the single mom said 

Kaitlin added: ‘It was so funny because my mom thought that I was lying to her about having twins again’

After another stellar pregnancy, Kaitlin gave birth to her second set of twins after carrying them for 38 weeks and five days

‘It was so funny because my mom thought that I was lying to her about having twins again.

‘I was on birth control [the pill] when I got pregnant with the babies.

‘I thought I was going to have to have a C-section because Piper was breaching and within the last minute she flipped, so I was able to give birth to them naturally too.

‘I had both of my sets naturally, I did have to have an epidural but I didn’t have a C-section.’

After another stellar pregnancy, Kaitlin gave birth to her second set of twins after carrying them for 38 weeks and five days.

She had another boy, Pierce Brooks who weighed 7lbs 5oz and a girl Piper Brooks, who was 6lbs 13oz.

And luckily she had no complications after the birth and was able to return home after 24 hours. 

Kaitlin said: ‘People are very shocked when I tell them that I’ve got two sets of twins because I’m only 22’

She added: ‘A lot of people are shocked and they’re like ”I don’t see how you do it?” and I was like ‘I don’t really have a choice you know, this is my life’

Kaitlin said she’s not ‘planning on having’ having any more of her ‘own’ children and that she’s ‘happy’ with four she has now 

Kaitlin said: ‘People are very shocked when I tell them that I’ve got two sets of twins because I’m only 22.

‘A lot of people are shocked and they’re like ”I don’t see how you do it?” and I was like ‘I don’t really have a choice you know, this is my life’.

‘I’m not planning on having any more of my own children. I’m happy with my four that I have now.

‘I don’t know about getting it [tubal ligation] done at this age.

‘I was looking into being a surrogate because I know there’s a lot of mom’s out there that can’t carry their own, like I’ve been blessed to be able to do that and to be able to do that twice with twins.

‘I’ve looked into that a little bit because that would be awesome.

‘But I was just wanting to wait until the kids get older for when I did that.’
