Irish couple couldn’t believe it when the three babies were born on the exact day their ᴅᴇᴀᴅ child was due.
When Ali had a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ at the end of November, their arrival helped to ease the ᴀɢᴏɴʏ of ʟᴏsɪɴɢ a child.
Alison O’Leary was pregnant with her second baby when she had a ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ. She and her husband Chris Deasy, both 32, live in Ireland and have gone through the sᴀᴅᴅᴇsᴛ time of their lives. What they didn’t know was that two months later, Alison would become pregnant with triplets.
“When I ʟᴏsᴛ the baby, we were absolutely ᴅᴇᴠᴀsᴛᴀᴛᴇᴅ. I couldn’t control my emotions,” Alison said. When they discovered the new pregnancy, the couple kept it a secret for fear that something bad would happen again. After testing positive, Alison waited seven weeks to retest. That’s when she found out she was going to be a mother of three babies.
She and her partner, Chris, a auto salesman, were excited to give Georgia a little brother or sister. Unfortunately, she ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴇᴅ while she was only five weeks pregnant. Her hopes of starting a family were ᴅᴀsʜᴇᴅ… but only for a short time, as she became pregnant again in January.
“It dawned on me that it was all meant to be. They are our three little miracles, and we consider them as a gift from God. It’s as though our prior baby was watching out for them.” Ali’s incredible story of hope, mystery, and eventually unbridled delight began when she became pregnant late last year.
After experiencing the new pregnancy, the couple had a second surprise: the triplets were born exactly on the day the first baby would be born. Babies were born ᴘʀᴇᴍᴀᴛᴜʀᴇ but made a quick recovery. “I was worried when the triplets were born ᴘʀᴇᴍᴀᴛᴜʀᴇʟʏ, but when I realized the date a few days later, I immediately felt better,” said Chris.
“We have a very busy family and we are constantly feeding or changing diapers. In the beginning there were at least 18 diapers a day! I wouldn’t change anything that happened. When they are older we will tell them what their birthday means and how special that’s it,” said Alison.
