Seven months ago, Julie and David Grygla welcomed triplets after undergoing fertility treatments. Now, they’re expecting twins! However, they were quite shocked this time around because, surprisingly, they were able to conceive naturally! They reportedly tried to conceive for 18 months before Julie became pregnant with the triplets, so this pregnancy definitely comes as a pleasant surprise, reports the Daily Mail.
So, by summer of 2016, the St. George, Utah couple will have five children under the age of two. Although Julie and David have expressed normal concerns like how they’ll ever get any sleep or fit five car seats in their minivan, they couldn’t be happier about the evolution of their young family! She also cited the benefits of having a big family!
“I’m grateful that they will all have a buddy, all the way through,” Julie told Deseret News. They don’t have to go through these hard times alone. They will have each other to get in trouble with, but also to keep each other on the straight and narrow. That is a great comfort to me. And we’re just going to have a lot of fun.”
During an exclusive interview, the couple shared some interesting details about their eventful life and how much their children mean to them.
Although conceiving hasn’t always been easy feat, they find comfort in knowing this was all meant to be.
“Dave once in his prayers said, ‘We’ll take as many spirits as you will send to this home. We will teach them the gospel and we will raise them up to you,'” Julie recalled. “We must be serious about that because he’s sending us all these kids. We really couldn’t be happier about it.”
She also took to her blog with a post about their joyous discovery and the excitement they felt when they learned they’d be welcoming a new addition to the family! She explained the difference in their emotions this time around.
“Instead of the shock we felt with the triplets, we felt incredible excitement,” she wrote.
Julie and David Grygla’s twins are expected to arise some time in May!
