MAGGIE'S MAIN CONCERN

According to the hospital representatives, Maggie's principle concern was everybody except herself. They added that she stressed over the wellbeing of her babies, her husband and their son, as well as the medical attendants and doctors caring for her.

As reported by PEOPLE, Maggie's husband also tested positive for the novel coronavirus. That was the reason he couldn't visit her in the hospital.

Only two minutes apart at 32 weeks, Maggie's three babies — Isabella, Nathaniel, and Adriel — were born via C-section. Luckily, the newborns are healthy and safe.

SHE WAS REALLY SHOCKED

In an interview with Good Morning America, Maggie said she was stunned to discover she was having triplets. She explained that multiple babies do not run on her side of the family, though, twins do run on the side of her husband.

Talking about her COVID-19 diagnosis, Maggie said since March, she and her family had been so cautious and that she had not gone out. That was the explanation she was truly shocked after learning she had tested positive for the virus.
