When it comes to close sisters, they don’t get much closer than the Gaines sisters. All born within 18 months of each other, the four siblings are now all expecting babies at around the same time.
Twins Haley Andrews and Katie DeAngelis, 33, and their sisters Amy Gossett, 32, and Caroline Toth, 30 are all pregnant and due just weeks apart. And no, they didn’t plan their mini family baby boom.
“Being able to find out that my three sisters were also pregnant was just beyond any dream I could have imagined,” Caroline told Good Morning America. “It was magical finding out that we get to go through this experience together,” she said to KCTV.
The sisters, from Sacramento in the US, have been able to turn to each other as they go through pandemic pregnancies. “The amount of support that we can have, calling each other almost daily, has been, honestly, the coolest ever,” Caroline said. “Yes! Where it’s like, ‘This just started for me, have you had any of these symptoms yet? Oh yeah, me too,’ ” Amy added.
A family affair
The sisters’ parents are already preparing for a future of four of their grandchildren sharing close birthdates. “Them being pregnant together has really just been wonderful,” their mum Beth Gaines said. “Two of them – the twins – have never been pregnant before. So it’s really fun watching their relationships blossom.”
“It’s very exciting. We’re going to have two boys and two girls,” their dad Ted added. “Blessings come in 2021 and part of that is having four new grandchildren. We have three grandchildren now and we’re going to go to seven. So, we’re trying to figure out how do we do this?”
It’s been reported that Katie, the first sister who found out she was expecting, gave birth earlier this month, with the other sisters due in June and July. The sisters have created an Instagram account, The Gaines Girls, for anyone wanting to follow their journey.
