Paula Deen's Daughter-in-Law Shares Sweet Photo of Her Adorable Triplets
Claudia Lovera, the daughter-in-law of the famous Paula Deen, celebrated mother's day with a heartwarming message sending out well wishes to mothers everywhere.
Rivera is wife to Paula's son Bobby Deen. The couple tied the knot in 2013 and announced they were pregnant in 2018. Lovera had been having fertility issues in prior years during her marriage.
Unfortunately, the pregnancy turned into a high-risk situation that required her to be in the hospital for an extensive period of time. Her triplets, two girls and a boy, were born around three months premature.

She urged others who are having challenges to believe there is light at the end of the tunnel. Lovera's triplets are Paula's third, fourth and fifth grandchildren.
She also has a step-grandson through her other son Jaime. Paula is known for her cookbooks and television shows of the same nature. Her son Bobby followed in her footsteps and now has his own cooking shows called "Not My Mama's Meals."
Back when her grandchildren were still fighting for their lives, Paula posted a message to Facebook saying “We’ve got complete faith that God has his arms wrapped around the babies and I can’t wait until they come home.”
In March, she celebrated their five-month milestone by sharing three sweet photos of the triplets to Instagram. She described the sleeping babies as enjoying some "tummy time."
She wrote: "We love playing in our baby gyms, smiling in the mornings and bath time." Paula's own cooking show she was canceled back in 2013 when her former use of racial slurs emerged into the spotlight.
Happy Mother's Day to her daughter-in-law Rivera who is loving being a mom for the first time. We wish her and her babies continued health and blessings.
