The Houston hospital said the chance of giving birth to two sets of identical twins is about 1 in 70 million.

A Texas mother had a one-in-70-million kind of Valentine's Day this year when she gave birth to two sets of identical twin boys, a Houston hospital said Monday.
The four brothers were delivered at 31 weeks to Tressa Montalvo, 36, via cesarean section at The Woman's Hospital of Texas, according to a news release from the hospital.
Tressa and Manuel Montalvo Jr. were not using any fertility drugs and had just hoped for a little brother or sister for their 2-year-old son, Memphis, according to the release.
"We planned the pregnancy — I guess we just succeeded a little too much!" said Tressa Montalvo, as quoted in the release.

When Montalvo was 10 weeks pregnant, her physician told her she was having twins, and on a subsequent visit, the doctor detected a third heartbeat. The Montalvos were later informed they were having four babies — not quadruplets but two sets of twins.
