Mothers Kylie Szafranski, 30, and Virginia Johnson, 39, became friends online after realizing they both gave birth to four babies 11 days apart in the same town of Phoenix, in the United States.
Two moms from the same town had “miracle quadruplets” just 11 days apart after they both suffered the headache of multiple ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs. Kylie Szafranksi, 30, and Virginia Johnson, 39, mothers of five, initially became friends online after noticing the ultra-rare similarities between their two families in 2017.
Virginia and her husband Victor, 49, had three girls and a boy – Ava, Olivia, Madelyn and Victor Jr, while Kylie and her husband Phil, 41, welcomed three boys and a girl – Damon, Gideon, Theo and Emery. Kylie is also the mother of River, seven, who is close friends with Virginia’s oldest daughter, Zoey, also seven.
The adorable quadruplets, now five, grew up side by side and celebrated some of their biggest milestones together. Mothers even joke that they’ve been “paired” into arranged marriages. Now, the proud parents are sharing these adorable Christmas photos of their kids taken over the past five years to show how much their babies, along with the older girls, have grown – and it will make your heart melt.
Kylie, from Phoenix, Arizona, USA, said, “We had no idea the other existed when we were pregnant. I had my four children, and just over a week later, I saw on the local news that a woman from my area had also given birth to quadruplets. Everyone was freaking out because there were two sets of Phoenix – born quads so close together.”
“We were actually in a moms’ group together on Facebook and eventually we started texting and became friends after we met. Babies should only be a few weeks old when we start talking.”
“This is our fourth year doing the Christmas photos. We do a lot of important holidays together, but we missed some this year because of the p.an.de.mic. It’s a special experience because our kids are very close in age and having quadruplets is rare, so it’s fun to share that with another family.”
Before conceiving the quadruplets, both mothers faced issues with ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ and went through the headache of multiple ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs. When Kylie became pregnant naturally with quadruplets, doctors said she was the only woman on the west coast of the United States to carry so many babies at once.
But shortly after giving birth to her babies, the mother was shocked to find that Virginia had given birth with the help of I.V.F, just eleven days after her and surprisingly, they were from the same town. And after discovering each other in a moms’ Facebook group, the pair agreed to a time to meet and the two families of seven have been friends ever since.
Virginia revealed that the best thing about the two families getting to know each other is the support they can offer each other because they are ‘all in the same boat’. She said, “It’s been really helpful to know that another mom is going through the same thing. We share advice, it’s like having a partner. It was wonderful to have another family together on this journey.”
“It’s amazing to see them grow and flourish in front of the camera. Kids love to play with other people. It takes a little warm-up but then they’re good to go. It’s like a big party when we all get together so they think it’s fun. Also, we always have food when we are together, so they love it.”
“We are both teaching our children to love and accept people for who they are. The world is filled with so much hate that I like to give hope that the next generation will be more loving.”
