It’s not often you come across a story where a person is expected to feel joy and pain at the same time.

But, that’s a reality for Courtney Hill who spoke to CBS2’s Brad Edwards about unexpected news that’s changed her life forever.

Courtney’s husband, Brian, passed away on February 2 from a trucking accident in Oklahoma. Just before the 40-year-old Navy veteran’s passing, the couple had been trying to have a baby. Courtney discovered she was indeed pregnant on the day of Brian’s wake. There, she held her late husband’s hand and told him the news.

Just two weeks ago, Courtney found out some more life-changing news: She is expecting triplets!

Although she will have to raise the children on her own, Courtney told the news station, “I’m excited to have three more smiles that remind me of him.”

Courtney’s dad Oscar Blomgren, who has been by her side through it all, said he wishes Brian could be here to see them.

“Hard to be without him and it’s hard when I see my daughter,” he said. “I just feel sorry Brian that won’t be able to see ‘em. I guess maybe he will see ‘em.”

Relatives set up a GoFundMe page to help support the mom financially.
