Widow learns she's pregnant with triplets after husband's death

An Illinois woman found out she was pregnant with triplets just weeks after her husband was killed.

Courtney Hill's husband, Navy veteran Brian Hill, was killed in a trucking accident just six weeks ago. The day of his wake, Courtney found out that she was pregnant.

She says she held his hand at the wake to tell him the happy news, and then a few weeks later she got some even bigger news.

When she got ready to tell her family, he dad says that he was frightened she was losing the baby. But, it was happy news - Courtney is pregnant with triplets.

"I'm excited to have three more smiles that remind me of him," Courtney said.

Courtney and Brian already have one daughter together.
