Baby Boys Born In Houston

A Houston, Texas woman gave birth to two sets of identical twin boys on March 15, 2004.
The babies were delivered via c-section at 30 weeks gestation at Woman's Hospital of Texas. Thee boys were named Jacob and Jacoby, Jason and Justin, and they weighed between 2 pounds, 5 ounces and 3 pounds, 4 ounces.

Proud mom Sheryl McGowen, 35, had been through years of fertility treatments. In a very rare circumstance, the two eggs implanted inside her both split into two -- making their twins quadruplets. Father Jeffery McGowen, 34, is a deputy with the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

The odds of two sets of identical twins are more than 1 in 11
