On August 10, Dannette Giltz walked into a hospital in Sturgis, South Dakota, with what she thought were kidney stones. She walked out several hours later with triplets. Giltz, who has two older children, had no idea she was pregnant, and had actually suffered from kidney stones before. Giltz and husband Austin named their new, four-pound babies--a boy and two girls--Blaze, Gypsy and Nikki. "One time I seen a shooting star and I wished for a baby brother, and I wished for like two sisters for my little sister because she always wanted a little sister...I knew this day was always going to come," Ronnie Giltz, the couple's 10-year-old son, told KOTA-TV.
