Kim Zolciak is expecting a twin, an Irish twin that is. She is reportedly pregnant with her fifth child just nine months after giving birth to her son Kash. What is an Irish Twin? About.com gives a history of the term saying:
“The phrase originated as a derogatory term associated with Irish immigration to the United States and England in the 1800′s. The implication was that large groups of close-in-age siblings were the result of uneducated, poor Irish Catholic families’ lack of birth control as well as self-control.
In modern use, the term is not intended as an insult, but rather a description of siblings born close together. Irish twins are not actually twins and they are not the same as having twins, which are defined as two siblings born from the same gestation.”
