    Having twins use to be rare but now it seems like every other family can produce two babies. Sheesh.

    it may be a stupid question, but how do they know that’s she’s having a boy and girl at only 2 months?

  • My guess would be, because she is considered “advance maternal age” they did genetic testing, and that tells you the sex, among other things.

    What kind of genetic testing can they do at two months? I wonder if they only implanted two embryos, a male and a female, and since she’s pregnant with twins, it means they both “took.”

    Genetic testing called CVS (Choronic Villi Sampling).

    Not saying this is necessarily the case here, but twins are no longer rare (esp. fraternal) because of the rise in IVF.

    This is one of the times where I believe IVF was used. If the twins are identical then I usually believe they’re natural. But if the celebrity in question is over 40 or close to 40, I’m inclined to believe that IVF was used. For example I don’t think Jennifer Lopez’s twins were natural but I do think Brad and Angelina’s twins are natural (they had no earthly reason to want to be pregnant bad enough for IVF)

    Jessica, how do you know that Brangelina had no “earthly reason to be pregnant bad enough for IVF”? They’re a couple who obviously want their children to be close in age, they have stated that they want more children and Angelina said more than once that she loves being pregnant. She was stick thin prior pregnancy and that can cause fertility troubles. Enough reasons for me to believe they did IV.
