23-year-old Becki-Jo Allen and her boyfriend Liam Tierney live in Liverpool, along with their daughter Indiana. The family was very happy and the couple were eager to have more children. So when they saw Becki-Jo pregnant, everyone was crazy about their joy.
But what the couple did not know was that her pregnancy would make a huge surprise to them. When the initial excitement ended, she noticed that a difficult pregnancy awaited her. From the beginning she had a constant nausea and strong headaches that she began to worry about. So she went to the doctor to see what was going on. Nothing, however, could have prepared her for what she would learn.
Becky-Jo is pregnant at triples! The couple was shocked and relieved at the same time. “It was the biggest shock of my life! There are no triplets in the family so we did not expect it. ” Fortunately, pregnancy went very well for her babies. But at week 31, the couple received very bad news: the contractions had begun, and although her babies were healthy, they were not yet ready to be born.
They made her caesarean and her children were born safe. But they had to stay for 6 weeks in the intensive until they grew up enough to be able to leave. Normally this would not be strange for triplets, but their doctors had said they were not monozygotic. But they had a lot of difficulty in distinguishing them and so they decided to do a DNA test to see what was happening.
The results were amazing: the 3 boys were created by 1 egg! This is so rare that doctors could not believe it. It is quite common to divide an egg and create twins, but dividing it into three is a very rare phenomenon. But now they have managed to distinguish them from their personality and from some small marks they had since their birth.
