(Newser) – Doctors told a Florida woman she had a better chance of winning the lottery than of giving birth to two sets of twins in the same year. But Alexzandria Wolliston said she won the jackpot with the births of Mark and Malakhi in March and Kaylen and Kaleb in December, per the AP. "Oh, yes, I feel like I hit the twin lottery," Wolliston told WPTV. Two months after the first set of twins arrived, Wolliston said she learned about the second set. They were born in West Palm Beach on Dec. 27. Both sets, Wolliston tells NBC News, were conceived naturally.

The tired mom says her 3-year-old daughter helped her prepare for the double dose of twins. “She was actually worse than them. so she was like having two babies in one,” Wolliston said. She added that she recently learned that both of her grandmothers lost twin boys at birth, which makes her believe her four babies extra special. “I always say that I feel like my grandmothers gave me their kids because two sets of twins and their twins passed away," she said. “I feel like they just sent them down for me.”
