Their identical triplets, which occur in only one in 200million naturally conceived pregnancies, are due next April.
NHS project co-ordinator Megan, 31, said: “I can’t believe it. This is definitely not how I expected this year to go.
“I’ve read somewhere that you have more chance of becoming president of the USA.”
Excavation driver Clayton, 41, said: “It was very shocking to start with. It’s quite a miracle.”
The pair initially bonded on the dating app Bumble over their love of dogs.
Their first date was a socially distanced walk around Clayton’s home town of Moorhouse, Notts.
Within weeks they were living together in Megan’s two-bedroom home in Kirkby-in-Ashfield.
Megan, who was widowed in 2013 and spilt from a boyfriend in January, said: “We haven’t spent a day apart since the day we met.”
