This Couple Thinks They Are Having A Baby, But The Husband Faints When Doctors Tell Him The Full Story


People always say “when you know, you know” and this stands very true for Nia and Robert Tolbert. The couple met back in 2007 and they knew immediately that forever was inevitable for them. Things moved fast and it was very apparent that they would end up starting a family together.

After a few years of dating, Nia presented Robert with some extremely exciting news. She was pregnant with their first child. The couple was ecstatic to find out they would be starting their little family and couldn’t wait to meet their baby boy.

Both Nia and Robert were ready to have a child. The love they shared was unlike any other and they knew that they had enough of it to share with a child of their own. In 2011, Nia gave birth to their beautiful baby boy and they named him Shai.

Nia and Robert finally decided it was time to get married in 2014. With their beloved child, Shai, and their undying love for each other, they felt that it just made sense to make it official. They had a beautiful wedding and they thought their little family was complete. However, they had no idea what their future held.

Shortly after their wedding, Nia found out she was pregnant again. While this came as a surprise, they were still extremely excited to welcome another child into the world. During the gender-reveal visit with the doctor, they were struck with an even bigger surprise.

After the ultrasound, they were told that Nia was having not one boy – but two. This was a lot to take in as they were only expecting to add one more member to the family. They never would have expected this roller-coaster to keep going.

The loving couple had to adjust and accept the reality of having twins. While they were nervous, they were extremely excited to meet their second and third baby boys. In 2015, Nia gave birth to a pair of healthy identical twins, Riley and Alexander. But the surprises didn’t stop there.

Nia and Robert mutually agreed that their family was complete and decided to put an end to having children. They had three energetic little boys bringing them love, laughter and of course, chaos. But when Mother Nature calls, there is nothing we can do to stop her.

The Tolbert’s quickly realized how much effort raising two babies (as opposed to one) was. They worked hard taking care of all three boys and made sure to be the best parents they could be. Then, just when they thought things couldn’t get any more hectic, they did.

Through all of the chaos, Nia found out she was pregnant – again. This was extremely unplanned and unexpected, but they accepted it as a gift and began preparing themselves for yet another baby. Little did they know, there was a lot more in store for them.

This pregnancy hit Nia differently. She knew her body and she knew how it reacted to previous pregnancies, so it was easy for her to feel this difference. There was a drastic change in her physical and emotional health. Nia was not sure what this change was, but she hoped it meant she was having a girl. She would soon find out that this was not necessarily the case.

Nia had a terrible feeling that something might be wrong with her baby. She was following the same regimen as her previous pregnancies, but seemed to be extra emotional and was gaining weight twice as fast. There are plenty of potential explanations for this during pregnancy, so she was simply hoping for the best.

It was finally time for Nia’s ultrasound where she would find out more about the baby she was carrying. She was extremely nervous as she knew something odd was going on. She was hoping it was because she was having another set of twins, or that she was having a girl for the first time.

Speaking with ABC News, Nia explained, “When we were expecting twins, our technician that was doing the ultrasound asked if multiples ran in our family. So this time around, the technician asked the same thing and I thought, ‘Oh, we must be having twins again.’”

Nia’s technician verified that she was in fact having another set of twins. Nia was absolutely shocked by this news, but more than ready to take on another pair. Then, after Nia took a trip to the bathroom, Nia’s technician hit her with another shocking surprise.

Nia’s technician wanted to double check the ultrasound to make sure she was definitely having twins. When she performed the final check, she discovered something very interesting: Nia wasn’t pregnant with twins. She was pregnant with triplets!

Nia could not even fathom the news. She had already accepted that they might end up with another set of twins, but triplets was a whole different story. Scared and overwhelmed, Nia wondered if they could even handle three more babies.

Nia now had to tell her husband, Robert, the news. She did not know what to expect, but she knew that she had to figure out a good way to share this overwhelming news. Nia made a gift box containing the three baby sonograms and three baby onesies.

Speaking with ABC News, Robert recounts, “I opened the bag and I saw a very, very long sonogram. Then I saw three onesies in the bag … and they were numbered 1, 2, and 3.” After opening this gift, Robert actually fainted.

Nia and Robert decided to have a gender reveal party this time around as Nia was extremely hopeful for at least one girl. They would pop three balloons to indicate the gender of each child. To her pleasant surprise, all three were girls!

Nia had a very smooth delivery and all three baby girls are happy and healthy. The boys were hoping for more boys to expand their Ninja Turtle collection, but they have come around to the idea of having little sisters. The Tolbert’s are now one big, happy family – and I think it’s safe to say they will be keeping it at a family of eight for now!
