Mansfield News Journal reported Daneesha Haynes, Ariel Williams and Ashley Haynes all gave birth on July 3, 2020, at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital within a four-and-a-half-hour span.

“It was a blessing, It is amazing. This kind of blew everybody away," Daneesha Haynes said.

According to the report, all three sisters had their deliveries induced by Edroy McMillan who delivered all three babies. Daneesha was not due until July 23, 2020.

Ariel was the first to give birth that day, naming her over 3kg daughter Sincere.

Ashley followed with her over 2kg son Adrion. Daneesha completed the trifecta with daughter Emrie, who weighed in at over 1kg.

"I was due July 23, 2020, but I was high risk. She (daughter) had to be taken three weeks ahead. They said smaller babies can not handle the birth process as well," Daneesha said.

In choosing the name Emrie for her daughter, Daneesha said she liked different names and wanted her daughter to stand out.
