Three Successive Tenants Have Twins
January 28, 2013 by UPI - United Press International, Inc.
OKLAHOMA CITY, (UPI) – An Oklahoma house has been dubbed “The Twin House” with a third consecutive family to live there having a set of twins.
Chelsea Smith of Oklahoma City said she and her husband, Brady, were not concerned in summer 2011 when Jennifer Gaines, who had lived in her house two tenants before her, told them that the last two couples to live there had boy/girl fraternal twins, The Oklahoman reported Monday.
“I thought it was crazy,” Chelsea said. “I thought, ‘Well a house doesn’t make you have twins.’
However, Chelsea said she discovered she was pregnant in early 2012 and an ultrasound soon revealed she was carrying twins — a boy and a girl.
“I don’t really think I could even verbalize it for probably 24 hours,” Chelsea said the moment when an ultrasound technician gave her the news. “I didn’t even say anything when she said there were two. We’re like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me.’”
Chelsea gave birth Aug. 16 to Vivian Elaine Smith and Elliot Lowry Smith.
The couple joked they could use the house’s history as a selling point if they ever decide to move.
“Maybe we could sell it to someone looking for twins,” Brady quipped.
