5 FAQ I Get Asked As A Twin Mother

Everyone loves twins, right? They're a real curiosity. There's a few questions that I always get asked as a twin mum, so I thought I'd share the answers with you.

Their Gender
What are they? Two girls? Two boys? Actually, they're a girl and a boy. That's my daughter (points to the baby dressed in pink) and that's my son (points to the baby dressed in boy). Yes I am one of those parents who play into colour stereotypes for their children.

Are They Your First?
Yes they are my first. They were my first pregnancy and subsequently my first children. I went from a mother of zero to a mother of two in just under five minutes.

Are They Identical?
Even after finding out that they are different genders, people still ask this question. No they are not identical and it's extremely rare that they would be identical. My daughter and son look completely different to each other in terms of skin colour, hair colour, eye colour, birthmarks, ect. 

Are You Going To Have Any More Kids?
Whoa hang on, I only gave birth five minutes ago. I haven't even thought of what I'm going to have for dinner tonight, let alone plans for future children. 

Did You Have IVF?
No I didn't have IVF. Who knows the reason why I have twins, it could be PCOS, genetics, medication or my weight? The possibilities are endless.

Mamas, what questions are you constantly asked as a parent?


  1. Well, yes! People do ask numerous questions from new mothers. I think I've been lucky because I was totally alone when I gave birth and even after that so no people and no questions for me.

  2. great answers and Congratulations on becoming a mum of 2 in 5 minutes.
    May they be the coolness of your eyes.
    I used to asked about the next, and it should be the boy so that your family gets completed.(haha).

  3. Awww lovely post... I've always looked at twin mothers and thought 'how do they do it?' mashaAllah.

  4. This made me smile! I think 2 and 4 are asked of mums of non twins too! Number 4 is so annoying!

  5. I have boys so people ask when am I going to try for a girl.

  6. Masha'Allah. It must be amazing to have twins. I always wondered what it would be like.

  7. "Are they identical?" Lol. 😂
    May Allah make them the coolness of your eyes. Ameen.

  8. Adorable I love twins and you got both may Allah bless them both Ameen

  9. As a mom.of twins and alredy having 2 kids before them these wuestions get really annoying! Oh and another question that should make the list is 'how do you cope??' ������

  10. Lol, that people still ask if they're two boys or two girls when you've clearly put them in pink and blue. My daughter is 20 months old and I dress her in pink but because she hasn't got any hair really people still call her a boy. I'm like "hello!!" she's in a pink dress. Ah well, boys can wear pink dresses too if they want :)

  11. Omg, this post made me smile lol. It must be wonderful to have twins. What's not to love when it comes to twins? They're so adorable :)
