One Chicago family received an exciting gift this past weekend when four sisters each delivered babies within days of each other.
Three of the sisters, Lilian Sepulveda, 27, of Franklin Park; Saby Pazos, 29, of Bellwood; and Leslie Pazos, 24, of Stone Park gave birth to healthy babies on August 6 and 7 at Westlake Hospital in Melrose Park.
Their fourth sister, Heidi Lopez, delivered a baby in California two days later.
Dr. Jean Alexandre, Jr., an obstetrician/gynecologist on staff at Westlake Hospital, delivered the three babies this past weekend, according to a press release.
"It is very unusual but wonderful at the same time," Alexandre said. "They all were healthy."
The family said that the timing was unplanned.
"We are all surprised and shocked," said Ruben Sepulveda, one of the fathers. "It's just a blessing that everything is fine and we are happy that we are here."
All four babies are healthy, and Sepulveda looks forward to their first birthday party.
"We have to plan it," Sepulveda said. "Something big for all of them."
