Adorable Triplets Were Born Four And A Half Years Apart And They Share A Special Bond

Usually, triplets are born on the same day, only minutes or hours apart, and rarely days between them. However, this was not the case for Rachel Hinsbery and her husband, who had their triplets four and a half years apart. How is it possible?

Famous triplets

Rachel and her husband, Tom, married in 2010 and immediately began trying to have children. Unfortunately, after 18 months of trying, they discovered that Tom had a low sperm count and was a carrier of cystic fibrosis, which could cause infertility.

They were devastated by the news but decided to try other means of conceiving. They, therefore, opted for IVF. Five embryos were created, but only one was implanted in Rachel’s womb while the remaining were frozen. Soon, Rachel was pregnant, and her beautiful daughter, Amalie, was welcomed on March 27, 2014.

The happy parents wanted to try again for another child and decided to unfreeze the frozen eggs rather than begin a new cycle. Then Margot and Teddy were born.

The siblings are considered triplets because they were born from the same IVF cycle; the difference in years was as a result of the embryo freezing process.

Rachel is glad that she is a mother to three wonderful children and that is what Mother’s Day is all about for her:

Mother's day reminds me every year how fortunate I am to be a mummy.

Twins and triplets are a result of multiple pregnancies. What is a multiple pregnancy? Multiple pregnancies occur when more than one egg is fertilized and implants in the womb. And when we are talking about triplets, many people want to know: how are triplets formed? In most cases, triplets are formed when three, separate eggs are fertilized by three, separate sperm. Identical triplets are quite rare.

Some research claims that conceiving triplets naturally occurs 1 in every 9000 births. Via fertility treatment, the chances are higher. However, this story is absolutely unique! We hope these special triplets maintain a strong bond despite the space between them. Family is the biggest treasure of all!
