A U.K. mom who lost twins born prematurely was delighted to learn she was pregnant again with another set of twins three months later.

In September 2015, Angel Hind, 33, gave birth to her first set of boy-girl twins, Blake and Annabelle Smailes, at just 23 weeks and weighing 1 pound 2oounces each, reported The Sun. The twins died within days of being born.

“They were both born crying and breathing, but Blake died within an hour. Annabelle survived and doctors were really happy with her. But then she got a hole in her bowel,” Hind told the newspaper.

After her daughter was rushed to the hospital, she died four days later.

The grieving mom and her partner Nick Smailes were overjoyed to discover that she was pregnant again with another set of boy-girl twins, three months later.

“It was hard because you feel so guilty. It’s just the worst thing you could possibly go through,” she said. “I felt like something was always going to go wrong.”

Fortunately for Hind, Mason and Ava made it to 35 weeks and after one year, have grown up to be beautiful and healthy babies.

In a tribute to her first set of twins, the singing tutor, has given Mason and Ava middles names in honor of their brother and sister.

“I can’t believe we had a boy and a girl, then a boy and a girl again,” Hind told The Sun. “It’s like déjà vu—I never thought it was going to happen again.”

“My partner has twins on his side and I’ve got some on my side but it’s far down the line,” she added.
