After the rise and fall of "John and Kate plus Eight" and the on-going popularity of "Nineteen Kids and Counting," it shouldn't come as any surprise that a new multiples-themed reality show is slated to kick-off tonight. This one, though, takes place right here in the Lone Star State.

It's called "Texas Multi Mamas," and it's exactly what it sounds like: A show that follows the lives of six Texas moms who've all had multiples. One of those moms is 35 year-old Dallasite Teryn Todd, the mother of a 9-year-old daughter named Taylor, as well as triplets Jake, Tyson, and Zach.
Todd fought the infertility war for several years before having Taylor, having been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Having gone through "tons" of tests and surgeries, Todd and her husband finally decided to go the Invitro Fertilization (IVF) route.
After the first cycle failed and after taking some time off, Todd was thrilled to finally get pregnant with Taylor. Five years later, since she still had two embryos left, she had a Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) (along with acupuncture this time around). And, voila, both embryos took and one even split into twins. (Something that Todd's doctor told her had less than ½ of 1% chance of happening.)
We caught up with Todd last week. Check out our Q & A after the jump.More »
