A mother of twins was shocked to find out she was expecting triplets – after her boyfriend convinced her to try for one more baby.

Charlotte Boon and her partner, Tyrone Sobers, both 30, decided to try for another child to add to their brood at the end of 2021.

The pair, who are already parents to nine-year-old twins Lavae and Lovelle, were delighted when they fell pregnant in December 2022.

But when Charlotte went for her six-week scan in late December she was shocked when the sonographer told her she was expecting triplets.

Despite the initial shock, Charlotte and Tyrone, who was previously self employed, are ‘so excited’ for their new arrivals – who are due in August 2023.

Charlotte, a carer for her son, from Manchester, said: ‘I went for the scan and the sonographer was giving me the weirdest look.

‘The she said: ‘There’s more than one – there’s actually three. I thought she was lying. I was in shock and told Tyrone over text. He didn’t believe me either.

‘We can’t wait now to meet them. We’re so excited.’

Tyrone said: ‘I was in disbelief when Charlotte said it was three. We’re looking forward to it. With the twins we were scared and didn’t know what to expect.

‘It’s going to be a change. It’s a blessing.’

Tyrone had always wanted to grow his family and convinced Charlotte to start trying for another baby in late 2021.

Charlotte said: ‘We needed to get going as the twins are already nine. We weren’t actively trying but thinking – ‘if it happens, it happens.’

She started feeling sick and developed severe migraines in December 2022 but put her symptoms down to her anxiety.

After she was three days late for her period, she decided to take a pregnancy test.

She said: ‘I didn’t think anything of it until I was three days late and then it all clicked.

‘I did a pregnancy test, and it came back positive. We were so excited, but I didn’t think it would be more than one.

‘I Googled my hormone levels and didn’t think they seemed high.’

Charlotte went for her scan later that month – and went alone while Tyrone had to stay home to look after their twins who were unwell at the time.

She said: ‘I was chatting to the sonographer telling her I already had twins. I thought “why is she staring at me?” I was in shock when she told me I was having triplets. I was having a meltdown.’

Charlotte had to break the news to Tyrone over text. She said: ‘He wouldn’t believe me for ages. I sent the scan to prove it.’ 

According to Charlotte, she had to show Tyrone a picture of the scan (pictured) to prove that she was pregnant with triplets, as it was such a shock as the couple already has twins

Charlotte will likely have a planned c-section ahead of the due date.

They broke the news to their family and friends on Christmas Day 2022.

Tyrone said: ‘No one believes us when we tell them. We told our family on Christmas Day. They were all shocked.’

The pair are now busy preparing to become a family of seven and have had to look at buying a new seven-seater car for their brood.

Charlotte said: ‘Tyrone is so excited. He can’t wait. I’ll have had five babies in two pregnancies. It’s crazy.’
