If you want to explore the game mechanics of popular new releases, discover cheat codes, and check out the latest updates on Xbox One, this is the blog for you! In this article, we’ll discuss how to have twins in Sims 4, including methods with and without using a cheat code.

The Sims series allows young adult players to create a Sim and build a life entirely of their choosing, offering a digital space to bring real-life dreams to fruition. Players can create the home they’ve always wanted and even have families within the game.

Players can easily get a Sim pregnant in the base game by having their Sims conceive and then performing a pregnancy test. However, determining how many children the Sim will have and factors like the baby’s gender can prove a bit more challenging. While players can get their Sims to produce a single baby without much trouble, the chances of a Sim conceiving twins or triplets are low without a little effort.

The Best Methods for Having Twins or Triplets in the Sims 4

The odds are low that a Sim’s pregnancy will result in multiple births. However, players can use certain features to influence whether a pregnant Sim has a baby boy or girl. For example, players can increase the chances of a baby girl by having their Sim listen to pop music and purchasing fruit seed packets, which contain strawberries that seem to be vital for having a girl.

In the same way, players can increase the chances of multiple births by using in-game features.

1.    Purchase a Fertile Reward

The Fertile reward trait increases the possibility of a successful “Try for Baby” for the active Sim who owns it. This benefit includes the other Sim that isn’t the birth parent, such as the male Sim partnered with the pregnant Sim. Players can purchase the Fertile trait from the Satisfaction Rewards Store for 3,000 satisfaction points.

2.    Get Your Sim a Fertility Massage

The fertility massage method requires the Sims 4 Spa Day game pack, the purchase of a massage table, and a Sim with a Level Nine in the wellness skill. With all of these elements acquired, players can use the Sim’s wellness skill to perform fertility massages, which will cause a “fertility boost” mood in the receiving Sim.

If players want to increase the chances of producing a higher offspring count without baby cheats, they’ll need to engage in “Try for Baby” while this mood is active.

3.    Get the On the Ley Line Lot Trait

Sims 4 Players must have the City Living expansion pack for this method to work. When Sims conceive on a lot with this trait, the pregnancy will likely result in more than one baby.

4.    Add a Wishing Well

Players who purchase the Romantic Garden Stuff pack can add a wishing well to their Sim’s property, which might increase fertility for the Sims living on the lot.

Having an Alien Baby

Beyond learning how to have twins in Sims 4, players hoping to have a little alien running around their Sim home must employ some unique tactics. In Sims 4, only male Sims can get pregnant with alien babies. The most popular method involves getting abducted by aliens between the hours of 10 p.m. and 4 a.m.

During the abduction, the male Sim may encounter a female alien called Senior Pollination Technician #3, who abducts males and “pollinates” them with alien DNA. Alien pregnancies function differently than normal ones, as the pregnancy reaches the third trimester after 72 hours.

Players must have the MC Command Center mod to guarantee twins or triplets. With the mod active, players can follow this sequence to determine the number of babies:

  • Click on your Sim
  • Select MC Command Center
  • Select MC Pregnancy
  • Click “Start Alien Pregnancy”

Players can enter the number of babies they want to generate, but the maximum for this mod is three. This method allows players to skip planning and waiting for abduction and instead start the pregnancy immediately.

Multiple Births Cheat for Twins in Sims 4

This guide wouldn’t be complete without the inclusion of cheat codes. Players hoping to guarantee twins with the least amount of effort must enable cheats and have the ID number for the Sim they wish to impregnate. To enable cheats, players must do the following:

  1. On your PC, hold down “Shift” + “Ctrl” or “CMD” + “C”, opening a command window.
  2. In the command window, type “testingcheats true.” to activate all cheats for Sims 4.

Once players turn on cheats for Sims 4, they can use the Sim’s ID number to guarantee multiple babies with this code:

  • pregnancy.force_offspring_count SIM ID NUMBER OF BABIES

For example, if a player wanted Sim 2345879032178 to have three babies, they would enter the code as follows:

  • pregnancy.force_offspring_count 2345879032178 3
