March 28, 2019

Babies are booming in the Salisbury (N.C.) Fire Department, where seven wives of the firefighters there are currently pregnant. "It could have been the husbands that planned it," Crystal Carter, who's eight-and-half months pregnant, told WCNC. "Our kids are going to grow up together, and that's all I wanted. " The Charlotte Observer reports that six of the seven dads-to-be serve on the same shift, which means they spend 24 consecutive hours on duty together before taking the next 48 hours off, while six of the seven moms-to-be will be first-time mothers.
