- Naturally conceiving two sets of triplets in a row does not happen all the time, but a couple has made headlines for experiencing such
- The couple, Tyana Stanton and Jarrel Covington, gave birth to their first set of triplets in October 2018

Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A couple in Wisconsin that has a set of triplets beat incredible odds by naturally conceiving another set of triplets and delivering the babies after 15 months of welcoming the first set.
The couple identified as Tyana Stanton and Jarrel Covington has a daughter named Kyhlee, who is their first child.
The couple lost one child during the second triplet pregnancy and welcomed twins instead of triplets, Daily Mail reports.
YEN.com.gh gathers that Tyana is a twin and also has twin brothers. She welcomed her first set of triplets in October 2018. The set of twins were born in January 2020.
According to the couple, they got on birth control after the first triplets arrived, but Tyana got pregnant six months later.
Tyana recalled when the doctor told her she was going to give birth to triplets yet again: "I kept saying 'no, you're looking at my records from before.'"
The mother of six said her husband was happy when she informed him of the news.
She said: "I called him from the doctor like crying hysterically like we are about to have our second set of triplets and he was just like 'Yeah, yeah!'"
As expected, reactions have trailed the development on social media.
Vanessa Skare-Song on Facebook said: "I would die! I have 6th and 7th grade (2) boys and I’m over here trying to survive...I still pawn them off to grandma for a few nights off.
"I don’t know how she can deal with 6 under 2 years old. God help her!!!"
Margie Reiha said: "Good luck to you all I hope you are all fit and healthy."
Paul Gibbs suggested that it would be financially difficult for the couple to take care of their large family if not for the assistance from the government.
He said: "Thank God for government assistance."
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that after welcoming a set of twins on March 13, a single mother in Florida identified as Alexzandria Wolliston welcomed another set of twins on December 27, 2019, the same year as the first.
Wolliston, who said she never thought she would have two, added that she believed the boys were a gift, after learning that both of her grandmothers lost twin boys at birth
