A mother who was told she would not be able to have any more children has given birth to triplets.
Elise Mitchell, 33 and her partner Paul Taylor, 41, welcomed the three miracle babies last Thursday after they were born by emergency cesarean at Royal Oldham Hospital.
Identical twins Lilly and Lucy were born at 11.27am and 11.28am, with their little brother Arthur the last to arrive at 11.30am.
The couple, from Rochdale, Manchester, who believed they were unable to conceive, say they are 'thrilled' to welcome the new additions to the family.
Doctors had previously told Elise she wouldn't be able to have any more children after she had to have surgery to her ovaries four years-ago.
But, in February this year, she and Paul were told by bemused doctors they would be having triplets.
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News , Paul said: "It was a really lovely surprise.
"We have only been together a year and Elise told me she couldn't have any more children and we had children of our own so it was okay.
"In February, things weren't quite right and we went to the doctors and they asked us if there was a chance Elise could be pregnant.
"We told them there wasn't but did a pregnancy test anyway and it came back positive."
Paul said he and Elsie came back a few weeks later and were told they were having twins.
After going for another check-up, the couple were then told they would be having triplets.
"To go from being told you can't have children, to being told you're having three is pretty shocking – when we got the news we were so thrilled," Paul said.
"We both have children from our previous relationships – Elise has a son aged 10 and I have two daughters aged 10 and nine so it's going to be a busy house.
"We are going to have to buy new cars and probably extend the house as well now."
