Nadine Robertson now has five children under five, all naturally conceived, and says that she regularly gets stopped by people when she goes out to ask about them
A young mum says it is “crazy but I love it” after having two sets of twins resulting in a hectic house with five children under five.
Nadine Robertson, 24, gave birth to the four kids in three years and says she gets stopped all the time when she goes out as it’s quite unusual.
Her eldest daughter Isla is four and then she has the two sets of twins.
Olivia and Ivy were born in 2018 on the same day as their elder sister, and newborns Cody and Hazel arrived just 10 weeks ago.
Nadine, from Doncaster, said that both sets of twins were conceived naturally.
“I just wing it every day to be honest,” she said.
“I wake up and I hope the rest of them are going to be in a good mood and are going to help me out.
“It’s crazy but I love it.”
Nadine and her husband, Phil Banks, 31, both have no other twins in their families.
The children are spread across their four-bedroom home, with each set of twins sharing a room and Isla enjoying one to herself.
Nadine said when she goes out with both sets of twins, she often gets comments from strangers who stop her in the street.
She said: “Every time I go out I get people stopping me on the street.
“As soon as they realise that there’s two babies in the pram and I have the other two little ones with me, they always comment on it.”
While she gets a lot of comments, Nadine doesn’t think it is so strange to have double twins as she has come across a lot on social media.
Nadine continued: “It doesn’t feel that unusual to me because I’m on a lot of twin mum Facebook groups so I see loads of people with two sets of twins.
“But I suppose for other people it’s not that typical.”
The comments range from questions on their behaviour to whether the kids are the result of IVF.
Nadine said: “I get it all the time, mainly from older people, asking if I had IVF, which I didn’t.
“The first person who asked me, when I had my first set, I was really taken aback.
“It’s so weird because if you had one baby no one would ever dream of asking ‘were they natural or did you have IVF?’
“But I just get it a lot, especially now with two sets, I know people are just curious.”
