She told INSIDE EDITION, "We have documented a lot of our journey. It has been one of the most therapeutic parts of our journey being able to express my raw and authentic emotions and feelings along the way. It made me feel like I wasn't alone as I have been able to reach out and connect with other women with the same struggles."

They finally found success through In Vitro Fertilization. They told everyone they were expecting twins, and shocked the crowd with news of a third baby on the way.

"When we found out we were pregnant with triplets it was absolutely amazing. We were shocked and overwhelmed with the greatest joy. Our story has been one of hope and it has been amazing to watch it unfold with a triple portion of blessings! We were elated to finally be able to surprise everyone with such special and exciting news in such a unique way," said Desiree.
