A young couple has recently welcomed identical triplets and now have 4 children under the age of 2!
Ellie, twenty-one and Billy, twenty, have extended their family by 3 after the young mom gave birth to identical triplets.
Archie, Albie, and Arthur were born June 30th, beating odds of 200 million to 1 after they arrived twelve weeks early. At the time they only had a forty percent chance of survival, making them the ultimate miracle babies.
And even with multiple health issues including sepsis and jaundice, and brain bleeds, the little ones battled through and are now at home with their parents and older sibling, Lola.
Speaking to the Mirror, the twenty-one-year-old administrative assistant emphasized that she and her partner don’t have the “typical” lives of people their age.
“We obviously don’t have the typical life of other people our age.”
She continued: “It is hard but we’ve always been family orientated so we have made it work. The nurses were impressed by how mature we are when we were in NICU with the boys.”
“Strangers always stop us in the street to look at the boys and they always say ‘well done’ when they realise how young we are,” Ellie added.
But things haven’t always been easy for the couple as they suffered a terrible miscarriage back in November 2020 but within a few months, Ellie found out she was pregnant again.
“It was an emotional rollercoaster as they were so up and down.”
Speaking of the triplets, she added: “It is hard having four babies under 2 but routine is key. Fortunately, the hospital got the triplets into a good routine and fed them every 4 hours. Now, they only wake up once in the night.
After speaking about how difficult the routine can be, she emphasized: “I wouldn’t have it any other day as it is so rewarding seeing them grow up. Billy and I absolutely love it but we have no plans on having another baby!”
Congratulations! And we wish all the little ones well!
