"Being a father of twins isn't easy, but it has its rewards," said one dad. "There's nothing like coming home from work to have two chubby faces and two sets of chubby arms held up to me, pleading, 'Daddy, hold you! Daddy, hold you!"

In the words of a Nigerian father, "Twins are a hard happiness."
