Becky Johns, who gave birth to her daughter in February, thought it would be nice for her baby girl to have a sibling close in age.
Therefore, Johns and her partner Jason Evans became pregnant again only one week after the delivery of her daughter.
Johns was shocked that their efforts paid off so quickly, saying, “I started to worry about how I would cope with two little ones together, so close in age. But I was confident that I could do it.”
At their ultrasound, the couple was shocked to discover that their little girl would not have only one new playmate, but three!
“I had to stare at the screen just to make sure for myself. And I counted the heartbeats one by one. It was true I was actually pregnant with triplets, the surprised mom-to-be said.
“They were all naturally conceived and they were each from a separate egg, which is really rare. Doctors told us it was the healthiest way to have triplets, because they all had a placenta each, it meant there was no risks associated with any one of them sharing a placenta.”
Johns added that initially none of her friends believed her.
“When we told our friends and family, people thought they were joking. Jason’s a bit of a joker, so no one took him seriously when he told them. Even when he showed his sister the scan picture of all three triplets together, she still wasn’t convinced.”
