WATCH ABOVE: Three sisters in Ireland all gave birth on Tuesday while the fourth sister is expecting to deliver her baby very soon.

TORONTO — Three little bundles of joy arrived to an Irish family Tuesday as three sisters gave birth on the same day in the same hospital.

The two boys and a girl were born at Mayo General Hospital in Castlebar, Ireland. The three babies had different due dates but all came at once and a fourth sister is currently overdue.

The sisters said they did not at all plan to have their babies at the same time, let alone the same day.

One of the babies was born via C-section, the other two naturally.

The hospital has been abuzz with the news.

“We were all talking about it this morning, the fact that we have four sisters in and it’s never happened, as far as we know going back some time,” said nurse Mary Salmon. “We’re just delighted.”

The new cousins have been named Thomas Óg, Sorcha and Phelim.
