Alexandre is more than 3 weeks older than his brother Ronaldo. Their mom went into labor only 24 weeks into her pregnancy.
Doctors tried to stop the contractions, but 4 days later, a very premature Alexandre was born.
Doctors explained a "delayed twin delivery" could be done and she was a perfect candidate. A healthy Ronaldo was born 24 days later weighing in a full pound more than his big brother.
The twins are both doing well.
