The first of the problems is that the children were born "to" the mother. This only implies that the mother 'received' the children or has some ownership over them. Not necessarily that she birthed them.
The second problem stems from the first, since a child can be born to a family, this means that the 'mother' does not necessarily have to be the one birthing the child
Though the two possibilities below are unlikely, they are still very POSSIBLE. Thus ruining this riddle.
1) The technology exists to have multiple eggs of the same mother fertilized in vetro at the same time. The woman does not have to actually birth the children....if she has ownership, they are still born TO her
2) More unlikely but still possible, a lesbian couple gives birth to their babies both at the same time. One mother has two children born TO her. They are not twins in any sense of the word.

The chicken gave birth to two chicks.
The hen is the mother. The two chicks hatch simultaniously from two seperate eggs. They are not actually born until the eggs hatch and in theory they could hatch at the same time, even if they were laid minutes or even hours apart.
Am I correct? I submit that I am!
