Well, one thing’s for sure, new mum Becky Johns and her partner Jason, from Wales, have a VERY busy time ahead.
After giving birth to a little girl, Mya, in February 2015, the couple decided to start trying for another baby right away.
And Becky was pregnant again just a couple of months later.
When she and Jason went for the scan though, they got a little more than they bargained for – hearing not 1, not 2, but 3 heartbeats.
Oh yes ? ? ?
“I had to stare at the screen just to make sure for myself,” Becky told Barcroft Media. “And I counted the heartbeats one by one. It was true I was actually pregnant with triplets.”
The triplets were naturally conceived – which is rare in itself – but even more rare about these 3 was that each was conceived from a separate egg and so each had its own placenta.
Becky, who also has an older child – 9 year-old Kayla – gave birth to 3 healthy little ones, named Phoebe, Raya and Ryan, in January 2016 via c-section, and says she’s delighted Mya will have siblings so near her own age to play with.
Wow – what a story!
Congrats mum and dad ????
