Managing three children as a single mother can undoubtedly be overwhelming, with a constant sense of chaos. However, amidst this chaos, there is a unique beauty.
Stephanie Hansen, despite facing unexpected challenges early on in her parenting journey, has become a newsworthy figure after giving birth to three children within a year who are not twins. She is courageously raising these three young toddlers on her own, defying the odds and showcasing her resilience.
Stephanie Hansen’s eldest child, Daphne, was born on January 28, 2020, in the state of Washington. At that time, Stephanie had recently started a new relationship and had begun using contraception, not anticipating a quick pregnancy. However, to her surprise, less than three months later, she discovered she was expecting twins with her new fiancé. On December 8, 2020, Stephanie gave birth to the twins, Rubie and Penelope.
When Stephanie Hansen discovered she was pregnant again so soon after giving birth to Daphne, she immediately felt a sense of guilt. She feared that she wouldn’t be able to spend quality time alone with her eldest daughter anymore. Initially, there was undoubtedly some sorrow. However, Stephanie shared that as soon as her younger children arrived, all her concerns faded away. The three siblings have now formed an inseparable bond and have become an unbreakable unit, according to their mother.
The three siblings, referred to as “The Three Musketeers,” follow a similar daily routine. They bathe, eat, and play together, sharing a communal dormitory. Their father no longer lives with their single mother, acknowledging that being a single parent can create a sense of chaos in their household. However, Hansen explained that despite the breakup, her ex-partner remains involved in caring for the children. They continue to co-parent and confide in each other, even though they are no longer in a romantic relationship. Hansen admitted feeling devastated initially, but she motivated herself, saying, “This is manageable.” They refuse to stay at home, lamenting in bathrobes. They have chosen to face their challenges head-on, understanding that it may not always be easy.
Hansen regularly shares TikTok videos documenting her experience raising her two daughters, aged 2 and 15 months, which has garnered her a significant following. Despite not expecting it, she has discovered that the saying “good things come in threes” holds true for her. She confidently states, “I have never been happier in my entire life!” These children are the greatest blessing she has ever received, bringing immense joy to her existence.
