It depends on what type of twins they are. If they are identical, chances of twin births in the family are not increased. If they are fraternal, chances are increased slightly if the twins are on the mother's side of the family.

Here are a couple of things I found at WebMD about twins.

I've always heard that the twin genetic part of it always skips a generation, so i think it would be more likely that your kids would have twins, not you.
