A primary school teacher who was pregnant twice during lockdown has given birth to four babies…in less than a year.
Ella, George and Olivia – were born weighing 2lb 9oz, 3lb 11oz and 3lb 13oz respectively.
Jessica, who also has an eight-year-old daughter, Molly, said she and partner Harry Williams, 34, were left ‘speechless’ when they found out they were expecting triplets.
But she said the couple feel “so lucky and blessed” with their new additions even though it means they now have five children under the age of eight.
She said: “It has been a bit of a whirlwind 12 months, we had a lockdown baby and then three more.
“Meal times are fun because they all need feeding at the same time.”
Jessica was still on maternity leave after Mia’s birth when she discovered she was pregnant again in October 2020.
Because of Covid restrictions, Jessica had to go for her scan alone.
She said: “The sonographer initially said I was having twins, which was a shock in itself but then she carried on looking and said she had found a third.
“I was speechless.
“I waited until I got home to tell Harry as he was with the girls and with it being very early days and because of potential complications with triplets, I didn’t want to say in front of them.
“I don’t think he believed me until I showed him the scan picture, he was very excited.
“It was a big shock, but every pregnancy is a blessing so we consider ourselves very blessed.”
