Hannah Donaghue, now 29, from Northampton, bumped into Ben Fagan a manager for Royal Mail, now 30, at a party in 2010 – and one thing led to another.
Neither were prepared for what was in store, as their night together resulted in Hannah falling pregnant for the third time – with three babies.
But despite being together a matter of weeks when they found out she was expecting, both decided they were ready to give their relationship – and parenthood – a shot.
At 10 weeks, a doctor had suggested terminating one of the triplets to give the other two a better chance of surviving, but the couple refused.
The couple welcomed their adorable trio via Caesarean at 32 weeks in October last year.
Sex in 2010 led to a birth in 2018? Even elephants are faster than that, aren’t they?
