Mum Gives Birth To Triplets In Two Different Decades After They Arrive 5 Days Apart

Kaylie DeShane, 33, from New York, holds the world record for the longest interval between the birth of triplets after beating the previous record of two days. Her first baby was delivered on 28 December 2019, and the following two triplets were born five days later on January 2, 2020.

During the birth, her firstborn had only a 9% chance of surviving a premature birth. Despite the staggering disparity, Kaylie DeShane still decided to have her 3 children: Rowan, Declan and Cian all lived and are now 17 months old.

Kaylie’s son Cian was born at 22 weeks and his chances of survival were slim. For the remaining two babies, doctors want to keep them in the womb a little longer.

Kaylie said: “After trying to fall pregnant for four years with my husband Brandon, 35, we decided to try IVF. We already have a stepdaughter, Naveah, 12, and an adopted son, Holden, who is seven years old; nonetheless, we wanted them to have a brother. We decided to have two embryos implanted rather than just one because we think it will boost our chances of getting pregnant.

“We decided to place two embryos rather than just one because we thought we would have a better chance of having a baby.

“We were told that there was a 10 per cent chance of it ending up being twins and a one per cent chance of it being a triplet pregnancy.

Kaylie was told she was pregnant with triplets, but doctors advised her to abort the two babies to save the life of the other. Because her pregnancy with triplets was high risk.  But she chose not to do so and instead persevered with her pregnancy with triplets.

“At 16 weeks, it was determined that my cervix was failing and that, because I was 1 to 2 cm dilated, I would require emergency surgery to stitch it up”. Fortunately, this did not occur, and the ruse worked. To maintain my kid inside of me for the remainder of my pregnancy, I must concentrate on unwinding in bed.

When she was 22 weeks and 5 days pregnant, she had to go to the hospital to have her minor surgery checked again, and was told everything was stable. But unfortunately, that night she was bleeding again. So happy that Cian is out and settled. And the hospital said no 22-week fetus had ever survived and Cian had only a 9% chance of survival. Cian was taken to the neonatal intensive care unit. He’s so small, I can’t believe it. He weighs less than 1lb.

After spending five days in labour at 10 cm dilated, the next two babies, Declan and Rowan, were born. Declan weighed 1lbs 7oz and Rowan was 1lbs 1oz.

Kaylie said: “The babies have been in the NICU for a total of four months. For everyone, it’s a matter of life and death at this point. But we don’t give up hope and continue to fight for them”.

Declan was the first child to be brought home to Kaylie and her family on April 17 after days of conflict. Before their due date of April 26, he returned home. The next babies, Rowan and Cian, arrived on April 30 and May 4, respectively. Finally, Kaylie and his wife returned home with the entire family.
