A YOUNG woman has shared her story of becoming a mum-of-two after she starting seeing a man just weeks before her due date.
21-year-old Alyssa Hodges (@alyssa_jane01), from the sunny coasts of Brisbane, Australia, went viral after revealing her extraordinary pregnancy story on TikTok.
According to the young Aussie, she was just three months pregnant with her first child when her now-ex boyfriend decided to end their relationship.
After the break-up, Alyssa joined the online dating app Tinder, where she matched with Max Silvy – and things escalated in a matter of weeks.
The two hopeful romantics had been on just three dates when Alyssa went into labour on what was supposed to be their fourth meet-up.
The young mum welcomed a healthy baby boy named Ollie and they decided to raise him together.

Since then, their relationship has blossomed and they've even moved in so they could be a proper family.
A year after they met, the Aussie bloke, 26, got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend.
But their upcoming wedding is not the only thing the family has celebrated recently – earlier this year, in January, Alyssa and Max became parents to their second child, a baby girl named Autumn Cove.
Whilst they're all thrilled, the journey hasn't been the easier and Alyssa recently opened up about the struggles of having two under two.
