During the first few years, a number of articles in local newspapers such as the Brighton Argus, as well as national UK newspapers such as the Daily Express and Daily Mail wrote articles about the Wood Triplets, talking about the shock their newsagent parents had, already with three boys, they hoped for a girl. Photos published included the baby triplets held in a newspaper bag by their father, and for their third birthday, sitting around a cake adorned with triplets.
