Professional basketball player Jill Noe is used to life in the fast lane. However, she’s slowing down to take on a challenge of a different sort: she’s pregnant with twins. As one herself, the genetics for twins run in Noe’s family. But now she’s experiencing the joys of carrying them first hand.

In fact, 34-year-old Noe and her twin sister, Whitney Bliesner, from Portland, Oregon, come from a big family. They share a brother called Jordan, a stepsister called Cacey and two stepbrothers, Maison and Trever. Their ranks are about to get even larger with the addition of the future children too.

Unfortunately, giving birth wasn’t an option for Bliesner, because she has a rare genetic disorder. To be more specific, physicians diagnosed her with a condition called neurofibromatosis when she was younger. As a result of the illness, pregnancy and delivery is potentially dangerous to both Bliesner and any theoretical babies.
