Stomach ache brings surprise twin birth

. ()

Late last week Manon Hogenboom from Vaesrade had to leave the carnival festivities because of a sever stomach ache. She went to the hospital, thinking that she might have appendicitis, only to find out that she was about to give birth. To twins!

Up until that time Hogenboom and her boyfriend Werner Colaris had no idea that they were expecting. The two girls, named Julie and Lynn, were born on Friday the 13th, Limburg media reports. Mother and babies are all doing well.

The new parents were completely unprepared for what was probably the biggest surprise of their lives. Luckily friends and family members have helped with clothes and other baby things. Father Werner and his daughters from a previous marriage are getting their home ready for the unexpected twins' homecoming.
