After giving birth to three spontaneous triplets, a woman became a mother of five in only three years.

Holly Bassler (33) was stunned to learn that she had three heartbeats in an eight-week scan for 2019. Multiples don’t run in her family.

The homemaker, from Pennsylvania, instantly felt ‘terrified’ because she already had two children Aaralyn, then two, and Jessie, then one.

Holly is now 18 months old and couldn’t feel happier. She describes Judah Jamie and Jack to be’miracles. 

One in 10,000 pregnancies produces naturally-conceived triplets.

Holly acknowledges that it’s not easy to have five kids under 5.

She explained that Mike, her husband, is an electrician and she wanted to have 3 children. They should be close enough so that they can all grow up.

“We didn’t think we’d have three children at the same time, as no one in our family has more than two.”

“I went alone to the ultrasound, and was completely shocked when they revealed that there were 3 sacs.”

“The pregnancy was amazing,” she says. I didn’t feel sick, and my body wasn’t sore.

“I didn’t have any health issues, the growth was amazing and everybody was doing well.”

“At times, it was hard to believe that Jessie was nursing while both of my children were in bed with me.

“I was worried about how I would manage with five children, but then I realized how incredible it is that my body created three children at the same time.”

“It’s both a miracle, and a blessing.”

Holly’s life has been hectic since the arrival of her tots.

She said it was difficult for each child to get the same amount of attention.

Holly stated, “Our lives are chaotic and very hectic.”

“It’s hard but I believe that the best days are ahead.

“The most difficult part is the overstimulation of all the children.

“As they all are so young, they still have to me for many things.”

“It’s a shame that I cannot be at more than one location at once.”

“But they are so close that they can share life.

“The triplets were a blessing for Aaralyn, Jessie, and Jessie. They have shown kindness, compassion, and a willingness to help others.
