Annie and Joby Johnson had been trying to become parents since more than 5 years. The Johnsons got married in 2005 and started thinking about starting a family after 3 years.
For five years continuously they failed each time. They tried every painful or expensive procedure but nothing seemed to work for them.
“When we were ready, we thought it would just happen,” Annie said. “And when it doesn’t, you just feel so helpless.”
But little did they know that good news was coming their way but with a twist.
Annie and Joby was waiting for one last call from their doctors and when the doctors informed that the new round of fertility treatments have also failed, the couple was left devastated.
Annie’s sister Chrissy offered to act as a surrogate mother. Annie and Joby liked the offer and went for it. Annie’s fertilized eggs were transferred into Chrissy’s womb. A couple of weeks later, doctors informed them that Chrissy is pregnant with twins.
Things took a more dramatic turn, when. The couple got the biggest surprise of their lives when the doctors informed to Annie and Joby that Annie is also pregnant with twins.
The family was happy and prepared for the new challenge of taking care of not one or two but four new babies.
“I said to the doctor, we were ready for a new problem,” Joby said. “We haven’t been able to get pregnant for five years, so if the outcome of this is two twin pregnancies giving us quadruplets, bring it on. If the worst problem he can give us was now there would be four babies, we were ready.”
Things continued to get interesting for the Johnsons because Chrissy and Annie went into labor the same day. Chrissy delivered two twin girls, Grace and Haddie. Then Annie delivered two twin boys, Charlie and Tommie.
Although all four kids have born from two different women but it is still quadruplets. Isn’t it amazing?
