Multiple Births

Update: 16 Year Old Agentine Mom Welcomes SECOND Set Of Triplets

When I covered this story in February the only details about this mom that were given were her first name.

IBNlive posted an update with photos of the family that I thought our readers would be interested in seeing.

The Argentine mom Pamela Villarruel poses (left) with her seven children outside her parents’ home in the town of Leones in Cordoba Province, northern Argentina, May 11.

Pamela, 17, bore all seven children in just three pregnancies, having her first boy in 2005 when she was 14 and the other six girls in two deliveries of triplets in the following two years. The busy mom and her children currently sleep in the living room of her mother Magdalena home, who supports them all by house cleaning.

The father of Pamela’s first son abandoned them, the father of the first set of triplets was forced out of the house by the family for beating her, and Pamela refuses to identify the father of the more recent triplets.

Magdalena requested to have her daughter’s fallopian tubes tied to avoid any further pregnancies, but was denied as Argentine law prohibits the procedure to be done on minors.

The babies are all very cute but this story is very sad. Having a baby is supposed to be a blessing. It’s just hard to see that when this young girl has so many before she can even get an education.

  • This is a serious issue with youth today. Where was the mother or father when the girl was having sex? If her parents knew she was sexually active, why was she not on birth control? This is a very serious problem all over not just in America. She can’t the education she needs now to go on and be a productive adult because she wil eventualy have to stop school and go to work to provide for her children. Very sad but also very controllable.
