Twin Brother Borns after 5 years of his Sister

Reuben and Floren were conceived at the same time but born five years apart...... Reuben Blake has just started Primary school but he will be 10 before his twin sister is old enough to join him. For although the brother and sister were conceived from the same batch of embryos, they were born five years apart. Simon Blake, 45 and his 38-year-old wife Jody had been trying to start a family without success and began fertility treatment in 2005. During the medical process, five embryos were created and two implanted in Mrs Blake, which resulted in the birth of Reuben weighing 9lbs 5oz on December 9, 2006. The remaining three embryos were frozen until the couple, from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, decided to try for another child last year. Two of the embryos didn't survive the defrosting process but the final embryo was successfully implanted
