DETROIT — A Michigan woman who's one-third of a set of triplets is celebrating the birth of her own three babies.
Amber Ali delivered Amir, Armann and Amari Whitaker on May 26 at Sinai-Grace Hospital in Detroit. The 23-year-old woman tells The Detroit News she's relieved the boys arrived safely.
The children remain hospitalized, and Ali says she's looking forward to playing with them. She says: "It's going to be fun."
Amir was 4 pounds, 5 ounces at birth; Amari was 4 pounds, 3 ounces; and Armann was 3 pounds, 12 ounces. The babies' 25-year-old father, Andre Whitaker, says that naming the triplets "took forever."
The couple live with Whitaker's mother in Detroit. Amber Ali's triplet sisters, Asia and Ashley, live nearby.
