When Gavin and Kimberly Fardel found out they were about to increase their family size, their world turned 180º. Everything changed even more when they found out that they were expecting triplets.
The couple already had a beautiful 2-year-old son, Gavin Jr., who has Dᴏᴡɴ sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ, and they didn’t expect to have three instantly. It didn’t matter when Grace, Stella and Emily were born; the unimaginable happened – the one in a million phenomenon!
When Kimberly went in for an ultrasound to see how her pregnancy was going, the doctors gave her the incredible news that it was not one but three sweet baby girls. She confessed to many local media outlets that as soon as she heard those words, she almost fell out of her chair from the impact.
“We knew in our hearts that even though they weren’t planned, the triplets would bring peace and much more joy to this family. It is a blessing from God,” said the emotional mother.
When the day of the delivery arrived, Gavin received the exciting news in the middle of a class he teaches at the university. His students knew that he was about to be a father again, so they encouraged him to go to the hospital as soon as possible, and they all gave him a lot of encouragement.
Grace, Stella, and Emily were born completely identical, so their parents decided that to recognize them, they would paint their nails different colors. Soon after, they realized that all three had the same birthmark but in different places.
The beautiful family says that their 2-year-old son is very happy to have three new sisters. He always kisses them goodnight, helps with the milk bottles, and says that he wants to take care of them forever.
The Fradels said although the triplets keep them busy around the clock, they feel overjoyed at their arrival because of the sibling bonds they can already see forming amongst the girls but also with their son.
“Life with triplets? They keep you busy,” Gavin Sr. said. “It’s an assembly line as far as diaper changes and feedings go. The only thing I wish I could do more of, and I’m sure my wife would agree, is be able to just hold them. Because our son was the only child, we were able to spend a lot of time with him. You need to share the amount of time that you can hold each girl.”
“But it’s funny because they don’t seem to mind because there are three of them and they kind of hang out together. They’re each other’s friends already. This early, we can tell that they’re going to have each other throughout this life, which is really good.”
Congratulations to the Fardel family!
