Associated Press

HOUSTON — A Texas woman has beaten long odds in delivering two sets of identical twin boys.

The Houston Chronicle reports Tressa Montalvo delivered her sons on Thursday Valentine's Day at The Woman's Hospital of Texas.

It says the odds of giving such a birth naturally are one in 70 million.

The 36-year-old Montalvo delivered sons Ace and Blaine at 8:51 a.m. Ace weighed 3 pounds, 10 ounces, and Blaine weighed in at 3 pounds, 15 ounces. Sons Cash and Dylan arrived a minute later Cash at 2 pounds, 15 ounces, and Dylan at 3 pounds, 6 ounces.
