NBC NEWS - One central Texas mother is giving birth to her third set of fraternal twins to welcome in the New Year.
Chanel Thibodeaux said she is set to have the pair of girls on Dec. 30 by C-section.
The 26-year-old had her first two children, a boy and a girl before she was 17 years old.
Five years later, a second set arrived - both boys.
Sprinkled in this growing family are an 8- and 1-year-old.
When Thibodeaux looked at the ultrasound images on a recent doctor's visit, she was dumbfounded.
"This time I was like, 'Are you serious? At first, it was a joke, and I looked and there are really two babies in there.'"
