keep counts - This couple had one baby, then twins and now they are expecting triplets

Here’s how one family of five is becoming a family of eight.

Six years ago, Robert and Nia Tolbert of Waldorf, Maryland welcomed their first child into the world. Then three years later, they became husband and wife when they got married on August 31, 2014.

This happened to be around the same time the couple was simultaneously expecting their second and third child, as they were soon to be parents of twin boys.
“We joked about having a big family, but we never thought it would happen to us,”  Robert, who is a project manager with the federal government, told WUSA9. “We thought we were good with one or two, but here we are.”

Little did the Tolberts know, their family would get even bigger- by three to be exact. Although Robert and Nia both have multiples in their families, the couple never guessed that after twins they would be expecting triplets next.

During her ultrasound, Nia learned that she would be having two babies, but when she returned from the bathroom the nurse gave her a sonogram with an extra surprise. According to WUSA9, “The nurse told her, ‘There’s three. Baby A. Baby B. Baby C.’”

“It’s extremely rare. We’re talking less than one in 1,000 (births). That’s a very low chance for it happening to anyone in general,” said Dr. Rami Tabbarah, an OBGYN at Inova Women’s Hospital. “It’s very rare to have twins then triplets (naturally) in the same lifetime.”

Turns out, Nia hyper-ovulates, which is a rare occurrence when more than one egg ovulates at once. Nevertheless, Robert was shocked that their family would be growing by three, as his wife delivered the news in a gift bag with three onesies and a note that read: “Please accept this blessing from me and God. I think you’ll be overjoyed.”
The family will now be adding three baby girls to their three boys, 6-year-old Shai and 2-year-old twins, Riley and Alexander. Robert and Nia are expecting their new bundles of joy in early March.

It looks like it all balanced out. Congratulations to the Tolberts!

A Chinese father has been arrested for selling his 1-year-old daughter for £6,800 to pay off his gambling debts.

Chinese father sells his baby daughter to pay off gambling debts

Jiang, sold the one-year-old to a couple after owing more than 60,000 Yuan (£6,798), according to reports in China.

Jiang told his wife that he was taking their daughter to stay with his mother. He flew the child more than 1,150 miles away from their home in Guiyang, Guizhou province, last November.

Wang, his wife grew concerned after his failure to return three months later but repeatedly postponed their return.

In February, 2019, she checked her husband’s phone and found shocking conversations between her husband and her daughter’s buyers.

Wang went to her husband’s mother in Zunyi city, about 87 miles away, who informed her that her son and granddaughter left her weeks ago.

She immediately contacted police and they tracked Jiang down to a hotel in Guiyang last month.

When he was caught, Jiang admitted to owing a huge gambling debt and decided to take the drastic measure after seeing online adverts for child adoption.

Jiang lied to the buyers – a couple in Zhoushan, Zhejiang province – that he was a single father who could no longer afford to care for the girl. He went further to claim that his own parents were dead so he had nowhere else to turn.

Fortunately, the child was located by the police last Friday and reunited with her mum.

Jiang has been arrested and charged with suspicion of human trafficking, according to the police.
