Melissa took to Instagram to share this latest turn of events: “Yep, you read that right! Never in our wildest dreams did we think twins would be in the cards for us…We are beyond petrified for this new chapter, but also feel so blessed and excited for what’s to come. A clear sign that life doesn’t always go to plan, but God had a better plan in store for us all along,” she wrote.

She also elaborated on her fears: “Things were not all rosy once we found out we were pregnant with twins. For the first 10 days (at least) I was crying a lot, I was INCREDIBLY overwhelmed and extremely terrified,” she wrote, adding that as parents to a little toddler, they are well aware of the demands a new addition to the family would bring, let alone two.

She continued that: “I have never pictured myself as a mum of three. The idea I had in my mind was always to have two. The very fact that we are now having twins has forced us to make drastic changes to our lives, and it’s all happening quite fast.”

Despite the roller coaster of emotions, however, Mellissa says she and her family are excited and ready for what life is about to throw at them. “We feel so incredibly blessed to have been chosen as the parents of IDENTICAL TWINS (a 0.45% chance of this happening, and we have been chosen!) I will be very candid on this journey of becoming a mom, and share all my feelings, and progress…so if this is not your kinda thing…#sorry #familyof5 #identicaltwins.”
