So here’s the news. Are you ready for it? Because if you’re not ready for it you might as well stop reading right now. That’s right. Stop reading do something else. But if you are ready then keep reading…

The latest news in our lives (that’s Keao and I) is that we’re going to be parents! Woo hoo! Take a deep breath and read that again. Keao and I are going to be parents! Were you wondering when we were going to be parents? Well now that the cat’s out of the bag, the answer is that we’ll be parents sometime this fall. We’re not exactly sure when just yet because we have more news.

More news you ask? Yes, more news. We’re not sure because we’re having twins! Twins! Can you believe that? Right now inside Keao’s belly there are two pregnancies going on. Count ‘em two. Want proof? Here’s a picture from her first ultrasound (I know, I know, I said I’d never post pictures of our ultrasound, but it’s just too cool to leave out).


Do you see the two pregnancies?

There they are! Our twin babies! Ones on the left and the other on the right. Too cool right? It took us a little while to get used to twins, but Keao’s sister, Cassandra, has twins so we thought we could do it too. Two for the price of one. Sweet!

Then we went to our next ultrasound appointment and the tech kept squinting and making funny faces. At first we were super scared because we thought that maybe something was wrong with one of the twins.

Well our fears were somewhat confirmed when the tech turned to us and said, “Do you guys know that there are three babies in here?” Huh? Care to repeat that? Three? There was something wrong with one of our twins! He split into two and now he has an identical twin of himself (I refer to them in the masculine because it’s comfortable for me, Keao and I have no clue regarding their gender yet).

Okay, pick your jaw up off the ground and realize what you just read. Keao and I are having three babies! Supertwins! Triplets! Whatever you call them know that there are more than two!

After the initial moment of shock we asked the tech to count again. She did and mentioned that she was definitely sure there were three in there. I quickly glanced at the screen and saw the most beautiful thing…three babies and three hearbeats!

Warning: another ultrasound picture!


There they are: Baby A, Baby B and Baby C

So there you can see there are definitely three babies in Keao. I now share the bed with four people instead of the usual one. It’s really exciting and really overwhelming all at the same time. Many times a day our emotions run through the whole gamut.

So that’s where we stand right now. Keao and me plus three.

We’re seeing a specialist because this is considered a high-risk pregnancy (so we humbly ask for your prayers) and we were made aware of the risks. But not to worry, we have God on our side! He’ll get us through everything!

Here’s a last picture that our specialist drew for us to better illustrate what’s happening inside Keao’s body. Note: it’s totally not to scale.


See? There’s the happy fraternal on top and the two slightly squished identicals on the bottom

So that’s where we stand. We are going to go from the two of us to the five of us all in one fell swoop. Keep checking back from time to time. Keao and I will both be posting things on our blogs so you can keep track of what’s going on in our lives. You can read Keao’s blog by clicking here.

So until next time we would really covet your prayers. See you all soon!
