Darla and Mark got their wish of becoming parents... times 3. Darla and Dana both became pregnant, Darla carrying two of the babies and Dana carrying one. Darla gave birth in February, while Dana gave birth six weeks later, so while the children -- all biological children of Darla and Mark -- are considered triplets, they'll have different birth dates.
In a twist that makes this tangled family tree even more interesting, by Missouri law, Dana is actually the mother of Mattie, the child that she carried for her sister. So Darla and Mark will have to actually adopt their own child before she is legally theirs. Hopefully these triplets will grow to be as devoted to each other as these sisters are!
