(Scroll down for video) A gay couple from New Zealand, announced that they are the world’s first couple to have “tripling” babies.
The babies were carried by two different surrogates, using the sperm and eggs from the same donors.
David Beard, 41, is the biological father of all three children, who also share the same mother who donated the eggs.
David, and his husband Nicky Leonard Beard, 32, used two women from Mexico as surrogates.
One woman gave birth to a baby boy named Lachlan. He was born with medical issues, which has caused the couple to be stranded in Mexico, and their medical bills are mounting.
So far, they have already accumulated over $105,000 in debt.
The couple’s second surrogate gave birth to twins, a girl and boy named Kelly and Blake, just four days after their first son was born.
The couple said that the adoption agency took off with all the money they had sent for medical and hospital bills, legal costs and care for the surrogates.
