A Californian triplet Gina Purcell, Nina Rawlings and Victoria Brown were born within four minutes of each other 35 years ago, and now their babies will be born months apart.
The triplet, who told the New York Post that they were excited to be going through this experience together said it wasn’t something that was planned.
“We’ve always talked about having babies together when we were younger but since I was the first to get married and have kids, our timelines were different and never thought it would actually happen,” Gina Purcell told the outlet. “We never officially sat down and said let’s ‘plan’ this because of the different stages of life we were in even though we’re triplets.”
Brown is due to have her second child, a baby boy, on July 9. Rawlings is expecting to have her first child, also a boy, on Aug. 28. And Purcell will give birth to her third child, a baby girl, in November.
Purcell said it was actually her sisters that made her decide to have a third child as she had experienced a miscarriage some years ago.
Meanwhile, Brown said sharing this experience with her sisters has been fun. “It’s been so fun to share tips and what we learn with one another.” Adding that their pregnancy has brought the sisters closer.
