A Florida woman born with the help of a sperm donor has discovered she has 40 half-siblings.
Kianni Arroyo, 21, first began tracking down her brothers and sisters when she was a high school sophomore in Orlando.
The oldest out of the enormous brood, Arroyo has discovered her siblings include four sets of twins, some living as far away as Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
“I was raised just by my mom, and she’s always been honest with me about the fact that I was born to a sperm donor,” Arroyo told Metro US.
“I always wanted to find out more about who I was, and whether I had any siblings, so as soon as I was old enough to access the records I did just that,” she added.
She first became acquainted with her 20-year-old half-sister, Joanna, who lives close by in Tampa Bay. The women are close, and make arrangements to see each other every other month.
“When we meet, we hit it off really quickly and get on really well,” Arroyo said. “Even though we’ve never met before, having a father in common gives us a really special link, and means we feel comfortable with one another.”
Along with meeting most of her half-siblings, Kianni has also been introduced to her biological father.
