How likely am I to have another set of fraternal twins?

Twins dont run in my family, they run on my boyfriends side of the family!!!

  • It would be based on your family history not your boyfriend's. Fraternal twins happen when two eggs are released and his genetics have no control over that. I know of two moms that gave birth to only one set of twins and a couple of singles each. What does/did your OB say?
