While Christmas can be stressful for a family with just one child, spare a thought for the King family who have four children that are the same age - but only for three weeks in December.

Daily Mail Australia reports Queensland parents Mel and Pat King have five teenagers, with four of them all being the same age over Christmas - but they aren't quadruplets.

Arlia is the oldest at 17, but Paige, Dylan, Jett and Tamzyn are all aged 13 over Christmas.

The children are two sets of non-identical twins, with both birthdays being three weeks apart.

The younger set of twins, Jett and Tamzyn, turned 13 on December 10, while Paige and Dylan won't turn 14 until December 29.

Mum Mel King says when the children were young it was daunting having the four kids at the same time while juggling a four-year-old.

She's glad to have a big brood, because while it can be mentally draining it's good to know her children always have their siblings to turn to.

"They always have somebody, a constant. I would have loved that because you're never on your own," she told Daily Mail Australia.

Now Arlia is old enough to drive the twins to school it's a bit easier, but Ms King says she wouldn't have it any other way.

"We love it... it becomes your story. It makes you a bit different from everyone else."
