The likelihood of having twins grew by 72% between 1980 and 2018, however the likelihood is still quite low. Twins make about 33 births out of every 1,000.
What is the probability of having identical twins? For every 1,000 live births, three or four identical twins are born. So, odd again.
Savannah Combs, 23, was overjoyed to learn that she was expecting twins. Another thing she discovered later was that they both had Down syndrome.
The news was obviously terrible. Savannah and her husband, Justin Ackerman, knew that some people would make fun of her and her children because of their circumstances.
Savannah, however, cherishes them immensely as a result.
“They’ve been my little gems, but it’s very rare what they have,” she said to News4JAX.
Savannah Ackerman, a native of Middleburg, Florida, and her kids, Kennadi Rue and Mckenli Ackerman, became well-known on TikTok when she recorded their postpartum journey.
Savannah said in a video that she was advised to put her infants down because they wouldn’t survive.
She made the choice to keep them and give them a shot.
“Every [prenatal] appointment they had while they were alive was a blessing to me,” said Savannah.
Her husband had already departed for boot camp when she learned that they both had Down syndrome.
Savannah gave birth to her twins at 29 weeks gestation when she was brought to the hospital. Kennadi Rue and Mckenli Ackerman, identical twin daughters, were born on May 12, 2021.
The twins were born two months prematurely, so they had to spend many weeks in the NICU before they could go home.

“They are called mono di twins—meaning that each had their own sac—because they shared the same placenta, which is why they were going to be identical,” the woman said.
“Mo di twins are extremely uncommon.” When you factor in Down syndrome, the percentage rises to one in two million.
Savannah claims that despite their unique disability, they are just like any other youngster.
“They are experiencing emotions.” Their heartbeat is audible. They can communicate well. They know how you operate. She gave me her word that they would come.
They may be running a little behind schedule, but as I’ve stated, they will succeed. I’ve discovered that these kids are lively, optimistic little beings.
Savannah keeps posting incredible updates on TikTok as each youngster accomplishes new goals.
“I’m going to tell them that they can accomplish just as much as we can if they work hard and are determined enough.”
Nevertheless, others feel compelled to criticize Savannah and her family. As a result, the young mother has had to respond to some really rude social media users.

“I wouldn’t want those babies; if mine came out like that, they’d be straight up for adoption,” a lady wrote to the mother.
Savannah, on the other hand, had the perfect response, which she posted on Facebook.
I said, “Thank God they were born to me and not to you.” God knew precisely what he was doing when he put these kids with the appropriate parents, who would love them for eternity.
gorgeous females. Anyone who asserts otherwise is only being rude. These people are the most lovely and giving people on the planet! Please share this touching tale with others on Facebook.
