Three sisters gave birth to their children on the same day, in the same hospital, a few hours apart.
Daneesha Haynes, Ariel Williams and Ashley Haynes, of Mansfield, Ohio, were initially due at different times in July.
However, on July 3, the sisters ended up giving birth at the Ohio Health Mansfield Hospital, with the help of the same doctor, Mansfield Newspaper reported.
According to the outlet, the sisters were all induced by Dr Edroy McMillan, who then delivered all three babies in four and a half hours.
With the triple birth, the sisters beat one over 50m, according to a 1988 report Associated Press story, which cited the odds compared to a previous occasion where three sisters gave birth on the same day.
“It was a blessing. It’s amazing,” said Daneesha, 25. “This genre blew everyone away.”
Williams, 20, became the first of the sisters to deliver her baby, when she gave birth to Sincere Young at 10:10 a.m.
Ashley, 27, was next, giving birth to her fifth child, son Adrion, at 11:26 a.m. the same day, despite the baby’s initial due date of July 7.
Daneesha was the last sister to give birth, with daughter Emrie Haynes born at 2:43 p.m.
According to Daneesha, she was initially due to give birth on July 23, but was “at high risk” as doctors decided to induce labor three weeks earlier.
After medics induced the trio, Daneesha said she got “emotional” – but also wanted to be the first of her sisters to give birth.
“We were in a race. Once we got our break in the water I was just trying to be the first,” she told the Mansfield News Journal.
Despite having given birth to the smallest of the newborns, the mother of the sisters, Deborah Ware, told the store that she was convinced Emrie would end up outgrowing her cousins.
“She’s the smallest, but she’s going to let everyone go,” Deborah told the outlet. “You look.”
With the three new additions to the family, Ware’s number of grandchildren has increased from 11 to 14 in a single day.
