It was a Valentine's Day miracle as a woman delivered two sets of identical twin boys within minutes at a Houston hospital.

The Houston Chronicle reports Tressa Montalvo delivered the sons Thursday at The Woman's Hospital of Texas. The 36-year-old mother says each set of twins had a separate placenta and arrived at 31 weeks.

Sons Ace and Blaine were born at 8:51 a.m. -- Ace weighing 3 pounds 10 ounces, Blaine weighing in at 3 pounds 15 ounces. Sons Cash and Dylan arrived a minute later -- Cash at 2 pounds 15 ounces and Dylan weighing 3 pounds 6 ounces.

Tressa Montalvo says she and 43-year-old husband Manuel planned the pregnancy but didn't use fertility drugs. In her words, "I guess we just succeeded a little too much."
