A mum who wanted to have another baby after having a miscarriage is now expecting sextuplets

An incredible story has come to light after a couple who live in America tried to fall pregnant but soon discovered they have six babies on the way.

Eric and Courtney Waldrop have been together since school and are already parents to three little boys (two who are twins).

Earlier this year the couple dealt with a heartbreak miscarriage but decided they wanted to try fertility treatment to fall pregnant again. It was only weeks later that they got the shock of their lives when they discovered that Courtney is pregnant with SIX babies.

Yup. She's expecting sextuplets!

The couple have admitted that at first they struggled with the idea of Courtney's and the babies health and finances however they soon turned their worries onto faith.

Eric explained: "When we finally got far enough along to see the heartbeats, that’s when it kind of all changed.

"We just turned it over to God and we realized he was going to get us through it."

Aww.

She explained: "All babies are growing like crazy and so is my belly.

"Concern at this point is being able to take in the huge amount of calories required to keep this many babies and myself healthy.

"So please pray that my appetite will allow me to eat like I've never eaten before. I'm determined I can do this!!!!"

She went on to admit that although they're aware that "the hardest parts are yet to come," she was quick to say: "I'm reminded each week when we see them on ultrasound that their lives are truly a miracle.

"Just praying they will continue grow like they are doing now and that I can hold onto them long enough for them to be healthy.🙏🙏🙏"
