Nia and Robert Tolbert
Nia and Robert live in Waldorf, Maryland, and they met in 2007 through mutual friends. They both say that the day they met, it was love at first sight. They started dating shortly after meeting, and things just got better from there. They had been dating for a few years, and like all couples, they had their ups and downs, but overall, things were great between the happy couple.
A New Baby
After they were dating for a few years, Nia found out she was pregnant. The couple was very excited that they were going to have a new addition to the family. They knew that starting a family was the next logical step in their relationship. In 2011, Nia gave birth to a baby boy, and they named him Shai. Nia’s pregnancy and Shai’s birth were all normal, with no complications and no surprises.
In 2014, Nia and Robert decided that it was time to get married. They were already a family, and they agreed that it was time to make it official. Shortly after they got married, Nia found out that she was pregnant again. She was very excited to give Shai a little brother or sister. The first trimester of Nia’s pregnancy was going along smoothly. They were excited about the new addition to the family, and they couldn’t wait for the ultrasound so that they could find out the baby’s gender. They wanted to be able to tell Shai if he was going to be having a little brother or a little sister.
On the day of the ultrasound, Nia and Robert were more than ready to find out the sex of their baby. They were in shock when the tech told her that she wasn’t having one baby; she was having two. It was going to be twins! In 2015, Nia gave birth to town boys, Riley and Alexander. Now that the couple had three children, and they were a family of five, they agreed that their family was large enough. Three boys were more than this couple could handle. With three rambunctious boys running about the house, it was tough for Nia and Robert to handle, but they worked together as a team, and they managed to keep order in the home.
In 2017, Nia was shocked when she found out that she was pregnant for the third time. This was something that neither she or Robert was expecting. Even though they weren’t prepared for another baby and they never expected to have one, they figured that the pregnancy was God’s plan, so they embraced the news.
A Baby Girl?
Nia and Robert were hoping for a baby girl this time. They already had three boys, and they both agreed that it would be nice if they could add a baby girl to the family. From the beginning of her pregnancy, Nia realized that it was different than the previous two. To Nia, she felt different physically and emotionally this time. She noticed that her hormones were out of control this time, and she was very emotional. Also, her belly was growing much faster than it did with her boys. She hoped that this meant that she was having a girl.
A Bigger Surprise
When Nia went in for her ultrasound, she was worried. This pregnancy was so much different than her previous pregnancies, and she was hoping that it wasn’t because there was something wrong with her baby. When the tech began the ultrasound, Nia saw the shock on her face. Nia immediately thought that she was having twins again, so she asked if she was right. The tech told her that she wasn’t having twins; she was having triplets.
Nia had a gender reveal party and let everyone know that she was having three girls. Two of the babies were identical, and the other was fraternal. They named the fraternal girl, Mackenzie, and the identical babies Bailey and Zuri.
Friends and Family
With six children in the house who were all so young, Nia and Robert needed a lot of help. They relied on support from their friends and family members to help out with their big family. Robert says that trying to raise a half dozen children isn’t easy.
This couple thought they are having a baby. Husband faints when doctors tell him what it is. According to experts, Nia’s pregnancies were exceptionally rare. Having one baby, then twins, then triplets defies all odds. Robert says that they aren’t going to have any more babies for two reasons. First, six children are already more than they can handle. Second, they are worried that if Nia gets pregnant again, it could end up being quadruplets.
