A MOTHER-OF-ONE who struggled to conceive her daughter has told of her shock after learning that she's now pregnant with two sets of identical twins.

Ashley Ness, who is 35 and from Taunton, Massachusetts, appeared on Good Morning America, where she spoke of the moment she was told she was pregnant with four babies - not quadruplets - who are twin girls and twin boys.

In fact, the medical scenario is so rare, it happens to just one in 70 million.

"When she first started the scan, she was looking at the screen and wrote, 'A, B,' so I stopped and looked at her and was like, 'Wait, I'm having twins?" Ashley told the show.

"And she's like, 'Oh I don't know... I'm going to step out for a minute'."

The mum-of-one who had struggled to get pregnant revealed that the initial shock quickly turned into excitement for both her and her partner Val - who has three kids from a previous relationship.

The part-time hairdresser continued: "I had a very hard time conceiving my daughter and I've had miscarriages in the past, so I feel like to be able to be blessed with something so big is so amazing."

The happy couple are now excited to welcome their four new arrivals who are due in October.

In the meantime, a GoFundMe page has been sent up by a friend to help cover the financial cost of the four little miracles.

The online description reads: "The ultrasound technician had to recheck before confirming that she was pregnant with quadruplets. Two sets of identical twins, two boys and two girls, are unique.

Most often, they happen when a parent has been using assisted reproduction."

"In Ashley's case, her quadruplets are considered spontaneous. Naturally occurring.

"Ashley and her boyfriend are thrilled and overwhelmed. They already have four children between them. The expenses, even now, are adding up. They need help - lots of help.

"She lives on a part-time hairdresser's income, and he's a small engine mechanic.

"They will need lots of support as quadruplets require hospital trips, home care, lots of diapers, and other necessities.

"The babies are due in October; however, for the health and well-being of Ashley and her babies, they will most likely be delivered in mid-August.

“Ashley cannot return to work as these tiny miracles will need round-the-clock care for most of their first year. Your donations will help support these little miracles' needs.”

To date, the GoFundMe page has raised an impressive £10, 700 ($13, 310).

There’s multiple threads in Reddit dedicated to the trend.

“Has anyone tried planning their future children’s zodiac based on you and your s/o zodiac?” the Reddit question begins.

“My husband thinks I’m crazy for wanting to plan our next child according to signs so that when we do have another child we can all be compatible.”

Dozens weighed in, including one person who said: “Dad is a Gemini, mum is an Aquarius, and they planned me as a Gemini and I was born in the dead centre of Gemini.

“I think it’s a great idea! My parents and I had an incredible relationship.”

Another added: “I like the idea of adding a Libra. I have had three best friends that have been Libras so I thought maybe that could work!”

According to Vice, belief in zodiac signs is prevalent among multiple aspiring parents in America who plan when they want to conceive their child.

However, it doesn’t always go to plan.

The US outlet spoke to several parents who had their babies slightly too early or too late to fulfil their wishes of having the perfect zodiac sign.

Mackenzie Warren, from the US state of North Carolina, was hoping for a Scorpio child but her daughter ended up being Libra.

The couple tried again but deliberately delayed it hoping to avoid a Pisces. The second time it worked, as they ended up in Aquarius.

Parents are timing their pregnancies to coincide with desirable zodiac sign birth months – and it’s a phenomenon that stretches back years.

Then there’s Kimberly Miller, from LA, who told the publication that she really didn’t want a Virgo child because that had been her mother’s zodiac, who was quite uptight.

Accordingly, when her due date approached, she tried all kinds of things to kick the process along as the Virgo months neared.
