Rodger, 41, didn't feel that her family was "complete", so she decided to try for just one more child. Then, at her six-week scan, she found out she was carrying yet another set of twins. Rodger immediately text messaged the news to her husband, Colin. "He thought I was joking and immediately wrote back to say ‘this is not funny’. I had to explain that it really was true," she told

The mom of (now) six could hardly believe it herself. "How could that happen to me three times?" she asked in an interview the Belfast Telegraph.

Isla and Rowan were born two minutes apart by cesarean section on May 29th. Mom, dad, and all four brothers are very excited about the new additions to their family.

"They've been so helpful," Rodger told the Belfast Telegraph. "I think they'll be good brothers."
