We’ve all heard the phrase, “be careful what you wish for.” However, husband and wife Angie and Gino Colonna, from Southern California, certainly got more than they bargained for when they prayed for a little baby girl. It’s not that the couple couldn’t conceive – in fact, they had their first son less than a year after their wedding. Then, just two years later, the Colonnas had another son!
Still, while Angie and Gino felt incredibly grateful for their happy life, they couldn’t help but feel like something was missing: a baby girl! So, the couple prayed for a little girl, and, soon enough, Angie became pregnant! But what the doctor told Angie at her first checkup turned the couple’s world upside down…
1. Dreaming of Becoming Parents
Some people are destined to become great parents, like Angie and Gino Colonna. In fact, on the two’s first date as twenty-something, they actually discussed their favorite baby names! Meanwhile, before a single wedding bell rang, Angie and Gino also decided they wanted at least one boy and one girl. Without a doubt, these two were well on their way to becoming a perfect parenting pair.
It will probably come as no surprise, but just a few months after their wedding, Angie discovered she was pregnant with the couple’s first child, a boy. Just two years later, in the early 2010s, Angie surprised Gino with the news that they were expecting baby number two! Thoroughly enjoying parenting, the couple expanded their family and welcomed another healthy baby boy.
