Behind the scenes with September cover mom Tarryn Pather

Posted on August 31st, 2016

Are twins twice as nice, or “two” much to handle? Tarryn Pather, mom to four-month-old twins Mila and Azura and our September cover star, shares her experiences as a new mom.

Behind the scenes with Tarryn Pather

Did you know that 40% of twins develop their own language? With all the myths and lore that surround them, it’s not surprising that people are fascinated by babies who travel in twos.

Tarryn admits that, before becoming a twin mom, she shared this fascination. In fact, she longed to have twins – so much so that her doctor’s announcement that she was having twins was a welcome surprise. “I wouldn’t say that I had a feeling I was carrying twins, but perhaps I wanted it so much that my wish came true,” she says.
