Nia and Robert Tolbert met in 2007 and fell in love instantly. It was clear from the very first time that their relationship was meant to last and they soon started their own family. But they’d have never imagined that their future will hold so many shocking surprises.
The happy couple
Nia and Robert met in 2007 through mutual friends. Their love was unquestionable from the very first time and their relationship was growing pretty fast. After a few years of dating, they got some exciting news.
Nia was pregnant
They were gonna have a baby! The couple was really happy as they wanted a family and become parents. They couldn’t wait for the baby to be born. Nia gave birth to a beautiful baby boy in 2011 who they named Shai. But the story hasn’t even started yet.
They got married
Their son was already 3 years old when the couple decided to get married. The little family was really happy, but an unexpected change was coming. Nia was pregnant again. They were surprised to find out the gender of the baby when Nia got the sonogram.
When Nia went to get the sonogram, she realized that she wasn’t pregnant with one baby, but two! In fact, they were identical twin boys. Nia gave birth to them in 2015 and they named them Riley and Alexander. Now they were a pretty big, happy family. But the story continues.
A loving family
Now they had a family of five, but in spite of the hectic house, they kept everything under control. But something unexpected happened.
Nia was pregnant. Again. They didn’t plan it, because they’ve already felt that they are too big of a family, but they were excited for the new baby. They were hoping that after three sons, they’d have a beautiful baby girl. But Nia was feeling a little bit different about this pregnancy…
Her tummy was growing too fast
Nia recognized that her tummy was growing a lot faster than in her previous pregnancies. She was a little bit worried about it, because she didn’t do anything wrong or different than the other times. She was doing yoga, she ate healthy food and she even took prescribed vitamins for a healthy pregnancy. It was time to do the sonogram. What she discovered, changed the family’s life forever.
The shocking discovery
When Nia went to the doctor to do the sonogram, the doctor started to ask some questions about multiples running in the family. Nia was suspicious that she might have twins again, but that wasn’t the case. The doctor showed her the ultrasound and it revealed something that she wouldn’t think in her wildest dreams.
She was pregnant with triplets!
Nia was having three babies! The doctor said that that is extremely unlikely to have one child, then twins, then triplets. Nia was shocked and she had to tell the big news to her husband. She had to go to Maryland for the weekend, but she left a gift to Robert.
When her husband got home, he found the gift she left for him. Nia left a note that said: “accept this gift from her and God”. It was the sonogram picture and three onesies in a bag that Robert opened. The onesies were numbered 1, 2 and 3. Robert was so shocked that he had to lie down to the bed. When he got over the first shock, he accepted the situation and started to make all the adjustments that were necessary.
Boys or girls?
They really wanted the triplets to be girls, but they decided that they didn’t want to know the genders right away. Instead they organized a gender reveal party, where they popped 3 balloons: the color of the confetti inside would reveal the gender of the babies. The first balloon had pink confettis. They were super excited. Then the second balloon revealed that they’ll have another baby girl. And the third balloon also had pink confetti in it. They were gonna have 3 girls!
A family of 8 members
Nia gave birth to 3 beautiful baby girls in 2018. The babies were healthy and two of them was identical. They named them Zuri and Bailey. The third baby was named Mackenzie. Nia soon became known as the 1-2-3 mom. They had a pretty large family but they loved their children with all their hearts. But what the future holds, nobody can predict. What if Nia gets pregnant again?
Nobod knows what’ll life offer them. Nia and Robert are grateful for their six children and they’re raising them with lots of love. Their devotion to their family could be the perfect example for other couples: they didn’t freak out when they realized that they were gonna have triplets, but they made all the arrangements that was needed to be done to welcome the three little babies in our world. They have an attitude in life that everyone should follow.
