Briana and Brittany Salyers married identical twins, Josh and Jeremy Salyers, in 2018. They’re now introducing their babies to the world, who are so genetically similar that the cousins are more like brothers. But did you know that there is such a thing as quarternary twins?
Quaternary twins are babies who are both cousins and genetic siblings. When two identical sisters have children with two identical brothers, this occurs.
The ladies recall seeing Josh and Jeremy from a distance in 2017 and meeting them by chance on the final day. Sparks flew right away, with Jeremy and Briana hitting it off while Brittany and Josh talked.
Josh and Jeremy made frequent seven-hour car trips from their Tennessee home to see Briana and Brittany in Virginia. Within months, the brothers surprised Briana and Brittany with a joint proposal in Twin Lakes, Virginia.
My reaction was like, ‘Oh my gosh, we feel so drawn to them — I hope they feel like that about us too. We found out later that they went home after meeting us, and they told their mom that they were going to marry usBrittany Salyers
Twin Daddies, Twin Mommies
Brittany and Briana met Josh and Jeremy Salyers, now 38, at the 2017 Twins Day Festival in Twinsburg, Ohio, where they married in a joint ceremony a year later. Jett was born to Brittany and Josh, who announced the birth in January 2021, and Jax followed and was born to Briana and Jeremy approximately four months later. They are cousins, but they are also genetic siblings known as quaternary twins.
As the parents prepare to take Jett, who is now about 21 months old, and Jax, who is about 17 months old, to the festival this year, they’re opening up to people about their quaternary marriage, sweet rainbow babies, a whimsical wedding venue which doubles as their home, and more. Jett and Jax are bonded to all four adults, who they can distinguish despite their striking resemblances.

The Life of Having Twin Couples
Josh and Jeremy have been busy working on renovations since purchasing the property in February 2021, while the attorney sisters have a creative side project: co-writing a historical novel involving, of course, identical twins. The book is scheduled to be released in December.
Just some different places that you can be alone; we always say the manor has all the rooms from the game Clue, When we’re done having our own little adventures, we get back, and all four of us are with the kids.Briana Salyers
The couples also prioritize property dates, sneaking away to the pool, gardens, theater, and library.
Jett and Jax, meanwhile, love to be outdoors, especially for rides in their double stroller and play time. They get along well most of the time. They give each other kissesJeremy Salyers
