The new mom delivered two sets of identical twins -- Ace, Blaine, Cash and Dylan at the Woman's Hospital of Texas in Houston. SOUNDBITE: Manuel Montalvo, new father saying (English): "Basically I just pumped my fist and was like 'yes!' Home run," he said. SOUNDBITE: Tressa Montalvo, new mom saying (English): "We do feel like we hit the jackpot, yeah. But we didn't know the odds were like, that great."
