But Nikki and Juliet kept trying. And then, finally, the Cannicis discovered they were pregnant. And there wasn’t just one baby on the way. Doctors had implanted two embryos – meaning the happy couple were expecting twins. And so in April 2014 the thrilled new parents announced the birth of their son Nico and daughter Siena.
The Cannici family had now doubled in size, but it still didn’t feel complete. And so Juliet and Nikki decided to return to IVF and try for one more baby. And that’s when something quite unexpected occurred.
The Cannicis did indeed discover they were pregnant once more. But although doctors had only used one embryo this time round, it split. And so the family got ready to welcome another set of twins. And this time, they would be identical.
