Kansas Super Mom Gives Birth To Third Set Of Twins In 26 Months

“People just consider me a freak of nature when I tell them,” Danesha Couch said of her growing family.

Having one set of twins can be a real game-changer — now imagine having three.

A Kansas super mom has her arms full of babies after naturally giving birth to three sets of twins over a 26-month period.

“People just consider me a freak of nature when I tell them,” Danesha Couch, 20, told Fox 4 News.

Just last month the Kansas City mom gave birth to her latest set, named Dalanie and Darla. One year before that, she gave birth to Delilah and Davina and one year before that two boys named Danarius and Desmond.

Desmond, however, died shortly after birth due to complications of being born prematurely.

“That was a pretty bad time,” the mother somberly recalled.

According to a report by the BBC, there’s a one in 88,000 chance of having three sets of non-identical twins.

Couch’s race could have played a factor: African-American women are more likely than Caucasian and Asian women to have twins. Also, those who give birth to twins are significantly more likely to do it again, according to a report published by the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology.

All hands: The 20-year-old recently gave birth to her third set of twins within the last 26 months.

Couch, who realizes her odds of having another set of twins should she get pregnant again, said that she and her fiance, whom she plans to marry this September, don’t plan on having any more kids — at least for now.

“I love babies but maybe in 10 to 15 years, when these ones are big enough to help,” she told Inside Edition.

Though Couch said that they are getting by, she admitted that they could use some extra help. After being denied benefits, the family set up a GoFundMe account to help pay for diapers and formula. The fundraiser can be accessed here.
