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.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

Da’Vinchi has appeared in many television series such as All American and Grown-ish but it was his role in BMF as Terry Flenory that helped propel his career forward.
