All smile! The three sisters Mairéad, Joeline and Bernie with Thomás Óg, Sorcha and Phelim...and the proud Daddies! pic.twitter.com/Alu1m0EU5e— Sinéad Hussey (@SineadHus) September 2, 2015
And not only that, the sisters Mairead, Berine and Jolene Fitzpatrick - who hail from Cloonfad on the Mayo-Roscommon border - are patiently awaiting for their fourth sister to give birth in the coming hours.
Mairead gave birth to Thomas Óg at roughly 3:25am yesterday morning, followed by Jolene who welcomed baby Soraha at 11am and Bernie’s boy Phelim was born at about 8:30pm last night.
Speaking to RTE News at One, Mairead said nobody was expecting the cousins to all be born on the same day.
"We just never realised it would all happen on the one day," she said.
"There’s four girls, there’s five of us altogether in the house, but there was four of us expecting and there’s one brother.
"I was due on Friday the 28th of August, Jolene was actually sectioned, she was booked in for a section yesterday, it was her second baby.
"And Bernie was due today. Christina is still waiting for her little one, she was due on Sunday, the 30th of August."
Mairead also added that strangely, it was her first child, Jolene’s second, Bernie’s third and Christina’s fourth.
Again, what are the chances?
