Three firemen from the same station in Fredericksburg, Virginia, have celebrated becoming fathers to boys within a 24-hour period.
The proud fathers, who work for Fort Belvoir Fire and Emergency Services on Fort Belvoir Army Base, showed off their new additions on Monday, only a few days after becoming fathers at Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center.
According to Kyle Dean, one of the new parents, ‘all of our physicians are connected with Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center, and the nursing staff has been really nice, enthusiastic and kind.’
‘The employees actually make you feel as though they care about you. From everyone who walks into the room, including the cleaning crew, nurses, and NICU personnel, among others.’
Although Kyle and the other pregnant dads had joked about how bizarre it would be if their children were born at the same time, he said they didn’t really believe it would come to pass.
‘As soon as I discovered the truth, I informed the nurses. It’s just a heads up that two of my buddies are also coming, and we’ve earned the moniker ‘the fab three’ from the nursing staff.’, Michael Irvine, a fellow father, said to Fox News.
Kyle expressed confidence that their three sons will grow up to be good friends with one another.
With a «handful» of children already under his care and more on the way, Kyle offered excellent advice to first-time fathers, saying, «Definitely take advantage of it and don’t blink because it goes by quickly.»
‘The most important thing is to be present as much as you possibly can, (particularly) with our schedule — because, as Kyle Frederick has said, it passes by in a flash’, Michael concluded. They grow up so rapidly, so spend as much time with them as you can and soak up the memories.’
