Triple the Fun! 🍼🍼🍼
Submitted to Surrogacy Stories
Multiple babies multiply the fun (and work 😉), and triplets are a blessing and joy like no other.
Two gay dads explained how their surrogacy journey led them to an adorable, yet unexpected, set of triplets.
TikTok couple Jake and Sean (@daddiestothree) have shared many, many TikToks about their new family. Along the way, they’ve received a lot of questions about their journey, so they made a video to explain their surrogacy process.
Sean starts the video by saying, “So this is actually a pretty great question and one that we get pretty often.”
“Science is crazy!” Jake adds. “It actually took four people to bring our family here.”
The couple started with an anonymous egg donor that they found through a database. Half the eggs were fertilized with Sean’s sperm, and the other half with Jake’s, resulting in 12 viable embryos.
Jake continues, “We did some testing so that we would know which of those embryos were girls and which were boys, and then we implanted one girl and one boy embryo — one of each of ours.”
“And that’s how we got triplets!” Sean adds. “One of our girls decided to split on us! Didn’t happen the way that we planned, and now we couldn’t imagine life any other way!”
