Kaylina has Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome and was born without a uterus. The couple opted for IVF and surrogacy to have children shortly after their wedding.
Both Kaylina and Kylie have shared the IVF process on their official social media, inspiring and encouraging several couples struggling to have their own children. After finding a surrogate, who underwent a successful procedure, the newlyweds were overjoyed to find out they were expecting twins.
However, they received grim news during one of the check-ups that one of the twins might not be able to make it. They took consolation in the fact that one of their babies would be born healthy. Fast-forward two weeks, and the Fitts babies surprised their doctors and parents when both babies were growing and healthy.
Their twin girls, Marilyn “MJ” Julietta and Grace Kyley, were born on January 27, 2022. MJ is named after their respective grandmothers. They named their little fighter Grace, as she survived and arrived in the world against all odds, and her middle name, Kyley, is from the surrogate.
