Mothers of twins will appreciate that while it might be cute to dress them in the occasional matching onesie or enrol them in the same sports team, the double-up schtick just doesn’t cut it on birthdays. They’re separate little people after all, with separate identities who need separate servings of fairy bread.
That’s why mum of identical twins (plus two other children aged three and six) Bec Judd creates family “rules” to ensure her boys, Tom and Darcy, don’t get half the celebration.
In an Instagram post marking their first birthday on Friday, the 34-year-old model/television presenter/speech pathologist shared precisely what that entails: “Twin birthday rules,” she wrote, “Always have two cakes. Always sing Happy Birthday separately.”
