Black Couple Delivers Triplet Girls After Getting Pregnant Twice In One Week

This couple went from being told they couldn't have kids to having triplets.

Human Interest

Whew, ladies, come get into this story, it is really something to hear! SO. After being told by a doctor that they would be unable to have children, a young Pittsburgh couple just gave birth to triplets in a rare double pregnancy. Antonio Livingston and Dee Michelle announced their pregnancies, and how shocked they were, on Instagram, saying:

"Last year, my doctors told me that I wouldn't be able to have kids and would need surgery. But God said otherwise and gave us three healthy babies along with a completely healthy mother!"

Wait, what?! How did she end up pregnant with three babies, y'all?

Well, the parents-to-be are experiencing superfetation, an occurrence in which a second, new pregnancy takes place during an initial pregnancy, or when ovulation takes place while pregnant. This basically means that, although Dee was pregnant at the time, she was able to conceive again due to ovulation (she has dispelled rumors of a double utereus).

And what's even more interesting, one baby was conceived six days before the others and is fraternal while the younger siblings are identical.

 

The couple wrote:

"On January 18, Amani, Amber & Dream made their grand entrance into this world! I only see God when I look at my babies. Thank you God!🙏🏽 I birthed 3 perfect babies at 32 weeks, 1 day gestation. I am beyond for a smooth delivery and most importantly, healthy babies. Everything that I went through during my pregnancy was so worth it when I look at my babies! Amani and Amber are identical (even though these pictures don't look like it) and Dream is fraternal."

And although initially premature, the girls have all been reunited together and are now home with mom and dad.

Studies show that one in 250 pregnancies now result in naturally producing twins, and according to the Center for Disease Control, Black people have a slightly higher likelihood of conceiving twins.And although twin pregnancies are on the rise, triplet births are damn near unheard of in the Black community.

And because of its layers, the internet cannot get enough of this story.

Kissing is such a fascinating thing — to me. The reason why I say that is because, if the person you are exchanging a kiss with is someone who is good at it, it can be the sexiest, most special and most exhilarating thing ever. On the other hand, if they aren't so good — it's just gross. I don't know about y'all, but kissing is such a big deal in my world that I once broke up with someone, in part, because they totally sucked at doing it. It was like, no matter how hard I tried to explain to them what I needed in order to feel like we were in "kissing sync", they would continue to go off and do their own thing. All over my face (yuck).

Samari Ijezie is the creator of The Female Economist, a platform created to challenge and disrupt the stereotypical gender norms within the financial industry while educating millennials of financial literacy. However, before founding this financial literacy company for women and marginalized millennials, she had a career in fashion and style as a model that started in her preteen years. Though she briefly kicked off her modeling career at the age of fourteen, it was short-lived because soon after high school, Ijezie decided to go off to college but later had to drop out during her freshman year due to not receiving financial assistance in the next term.

Many people love October for the new fall fashion fits, changing weather, and never-ending horror movies. And while all of those are valid reasons, there's another one that should be added to the mix, the fact that it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Like many, cancer has impacted my family personally, and I'm well aware of the forever effect it can have on individuals, loved ones, and survivors. That's why I appreciate that this month serves as a personal reminder to donate, foster community, and volunteer toward a fight that affects so many of us.

There's that old wives' tale that sex before a sports match is a major no-no for athletes, but when it comes to us everyday folk, consistent lovemaking does the mind and body good. In fact, sex and productivity can actually go hand in hand. A recent multiple-university study found that professionals who had sex the night before going into work had "more positive moods" that increased work engagement and job satisfaction.
