The odds are 1 in 88,000, but don't tell that to Danesha Couch. The 20-year-old Kansas supermom has given birth to not one, not two, but three sets of twins in the past 26 months.

"People just consider me a freak of nature when I tell them," Couch told Fox 4 News.


According to the Huffington Post, Couch gave birth to her latest set of twins last month. She named the girls Dalanie and Darla. They join Delilah, Davina and Danarius. Danarius' twin, Desmond, died shortly after birth.

"That was a pretty bad time," Couch told the Huffington Post.

According to the news site, race may have played a role in the unlikely occurrence, since African-American women are more likely than white and Asian women to have twins. And those who do have twins are more likely to do it again.

Couch plans to marry her fiance in September, and the couple aren't expecting any more children anytime soon.

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


A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the young family pay for diapers and formula, since they have been denied benefits. The fundraiser can be accessed here.
