THREE sets of twins were welcomed into the world, just days apart.

The adorable bundles of joy – two girls, a boy and a girl and two boys – were born at the maternity ward at Glan Clwyd Hospital between May 24 and May 29. The first pair, Teddy and Nancy, were born to Terri and Paul Spargo-Thompson, of Prestatyn. Teddy, who arrived at 5.35pm, weighed just 5 lb 6.5 oz and Nancy, who arrived just before 6pm, weighed 5lb 8oz.

Alizeh and Addison were born to Latoya Camilleri and Steven Mitchell on May 29 and Logan and Lucas were born to Kirsty Parkinson and David Rayner from Rhyl.

The maternity ward at Bodelwyddan hospital usually delivers between two to three sets of twins a month.

Terri, 31, who has son Max, aged 14 and daughter Marilyn, who turned one just 12 days before her twin brother and sister arrived, said: “The hospital said they haven't had this for a very long time.

“At first, it was a massive shock to find out we were having twins. We found out when Marilyn was nearly four-months-old, but then when it had sunk in, it felt like winning the lottery. We feel truly honoured and blessed to be fortunate to have been gifted all these babies.

“It brought a tear to my eye to see all the babies together, six little miracles all in one small space. They were all definitely a talking point.”

As a result of being five weeks early, Teddy and Nancy had to spent a few days in the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU).

“The hospital midwives and all the SCBU team were totally amazing,” Terri added. “I think the most scary thing is us now having three babies all at the same time. We need and extra pair of hands.”

Lorraine Gardner, maternity ward manager, said: “To have three sets born within such a short period of time was very unusual. It’s always a special moment when twins are born and it was particularly special to have these three sets of twins here with us.

“Our midwives and nurses on our Maternity Ward work extremely hard to support parents with their new babies as do our nursing staff on the SCBU. We wish all three twins and their families’ health and happiness for the future.”
