Triplet pregnancy follows death of three children

A heartbroken couple whose their three children died in a tragic car accident just six months ago have revealed they are expecting triplets.

The American family of five were travelling on a motorway in California when a truck ploughed into the rear of their car. Such was the force of the smash that the three children sitting in the back seat, aged five, four and two, were killed instantly.

The couple were understandably devastated by the tragic road accident but, unable to conceive again naturally because of recent complications, decided to undergo IVF treatment in an attempt to have another child.

The 30-year-old Californian was overjoyed when the treatment worked and she became pregnant, but received an enormous shock when she discovered she was carrying triplets.

Her 36-year-old husband spoke to reporters about the pregnancy, saying: "It's kind of a two-sided coin. We feel amazed that it's happening but at the same time we're still mourning our children. Nothing will ever replace them.

"We feel joy for what's happening but we're crying and missing the kids."

The driver of the truck who caused the fatal vehicle accident is shortly due to appear in court charged with three counts of causing death by dangerous driving. It is unknown if the couple are also pursuing a car accident claim for personal injury compensation against him.
