Identical twins marry another pair of identical twins & now their babies are biological siblings
Venessa and Kerissa never imagined they'd end up marrying twins as a twin themselves.

Imagine this: identical twin sisters, Venessa and Kerissa Sealby, never even considered the idea of dating identical twin brothers.

Venessa, at 28, admits, “The idea kind of creeped us out, like no, that’s weird. And physically we had completely different types.”

But, as fate would have it, their paths were about to cross with two brothers who were just like them.


It all started in June 2020.

Venessa, a personal trainer, was tipped off by a client about Lucas and Jacob Sealby, identical twins who, like the sisters, were sports enthusiasts.

“You and Kerissa ran track at University of Oregon, they ran track at Washington State, and I think you’d be a perfect match,” the client suggested.

Venessa was hesitant but agreed to let Lucas have her number.


Soon after, Venessa received a text from Lucas, inviting her and Kerissa to his and Jacob’s apartment in Medford, Oregon.

To her surprise, Lucas was “definitely taller and more handsome than his Facebook picture!”

The sisters get a lot of second glances when they’re out with the brothers, and it’s easy to see why.


The first meeting was a hit.

Venessa clicked with Lucas, the more extroverted twin, while Kerissa felt a connection with Jacob, the shy but goofy one.

“We’re both the outgoing twin,” Venessa explains, “In high school, I spoke for Kerissa and he spoke for Jacob.”


That first hangout was a game-changer for Venessa.

“As soon as we got in the car, I looked at Kerissa and said, ‘I’m calling mom, because I’m marrying that man,'” she recalls.

Kerissa reached the same conclusion about Jacob just a few days later.

Fast forward, and the sisters had their dream weddings: Venessa and Lucas in October 2022, and Kerissa and Jacob in June 2023.

The Sealbys now live a unique double life.

They moved into neighboring houses in Oregon and spend their evenings playing card games and bowling.

“We live two steps away from each other,” says Kerissa. “I’m at Venessa’s probably 10 times a day.”

Venessa and Lucas have a 5-month-old daughter, Adrian, while Kerissa and Jacob share 19-month-old Sophie.

Here’s where it gets even more interesting: Sophie and Adrian are not just cousins; they’re genetic siblings, known as quaternary twins.

This rare occurrence happens when one set of identical twins has children with another set of identical twins.

“They share DNA in the same way siblings share DNA,” explains Dr. John Pappas, a pediatric clinic geneticist.


Professionally, the brothers work together as physician assistants, while the sisters are in real estate.

They’re planning for their second children, hoping to be pregnant at the same time.

“Our No. 1 rule is no one gets divorced!” Venessa says with a laugh.

The families are even considering attending the Twins Days Festival in Twinsburg, Ohio, the largest annual gathering of twins in the world.


The Sealbys’ story is proof of the unique bond of twins.

Before meeting Lucas and Jacob, the sisters often found that others didn’t understand their close relationship.

But with their twin husbands, it’s different.

“Jacob will get home from work, grab our daughter and go, ‘Want to go see your cousin?’” Kerissa shares, laughing.

“He just wants to hang out with his brother.”

It’s a life of shared experiences, understanding, and double the fun.
