Announcing: Victor Lawrence and Victoria Alexandria Sportello!

Yes, you read that right, TWINS! Early in the morning on December 21, 2019, these adorable new family members decided to abruptly make their debut! Victor was born first, weighing in at 9 pounds and measuring 21 inches in length at 4am. Victoria followed, twenty minutes later, weighing in at 10 pounds and measuring 22 inches in length. Here’s the plot twist: while Larry is the father to Victor, he is NOT the father to Victoria. DOC is Victoria’s father!

During one of my routine prenatal visits, I was measuring slightly larger than I should have been and we thought that we were hearing an “echo” heartbeat on the heart doppler. A sonogram was performed and we found out that I was carrying not one, but TWO babies. However, one of them looked different from Larry, more resembling Doc. An amniocentesis was done, followed by a DNA test on the second fetus, and it was discovered that Doc was in fact, Victoria’s father. This is an extremely rare condition, but it has happened in the past, but only a few times across the entire globe!

When Doc found out, at first he was having trouble comprehending, but then when it hit and he was out shock mode (it wasn’t bad shock, just that he couldn’t believe this was actually happening), he became very excited! So excited, that he cried lots of happy tears and I got some of the best hugs and kisses that I have ever gotten from him in my life! But that, plus the delivery story, are for another time! In the meantime, here are a couple of pics with the very proud fathers and their babies!

  1. Hey! Thanks for explaining how that works! We had talked so I had a little fore-knowledge of this post, but I was not understanding the biology, but how cool – only a few other times around the globe! I am guessing it’s such a rare condition there’s no actual medical/scientific term for it?

    Congratulations to the whole crew!

    1. Thank you, CinnamonLover. Yes, it was a bit difficult to explain, but organik/synthetik relationships and families don’t necessarily have to fit the human biology system and that is one of the many nice things about it all. 🙂
