Johannesburg - A South African couple living in London have two sets of twins, born four years apart on Mandela Day, 18 July according to the Sunday Times.

Frederik Hefer, 30, and his wife, Kim, 29, have four boys.

Twins Devon and Logan were born six weeks ago in a Cambridgeshire hospital by C-section on 18 July.

They share a birthday with four-year-old twins Tristan and Blake, who were born in South Africa.

According to the Hefers, there was a one-in-30-million chance of such a situation occurring, the weekly reported.

    My mom had 2 sets of twins! And all are girls! One set was born in 1948 and the other in 1966!

      Your mom and your father I hope. Alone, she would not manage to have babies.

    Fake record.

    My ex-boss shared his birthday with his father and his two sons - and they were born naturally (ie. not C-section or induced). Now that family's date achievement is rare!

    Umm.. not with a C-Section. They plan C-Sections with twins. This isn't as amazing as you're saying.
