Gina Gaston Triplets Graduate

At Memorial High School in Spring Branch, there are three triplets graduating from high school, which is not often. Luke Bethancourt stated, “We’ve seen each other in classes before, and it’s kind of special.” Alex, his brother, feels the same way. He stated, “I think probably the funniest part of the ceremony will be hearing the names of all the triplets called.”

There were three sets of triplets and 18 pairs of twins among the 664 graduates. They all claimed to be prepared for life after high school. Nina Garcia expressed her feelings regarding Alexander and Seth, her two brothers, “I think it’s going to be very difficult for us because we’re always together.” Even though we’re all very different, it’s special to be together, especially at this school,” Seth said.

In addition, you might be familiar with three of these students, who are the children of ABC13 anchor Gina Gaston and her husband, Mario Elie, a former Houston Rocket. Gaston Elie, Gina’s son, remarked, “I don’t think she’s really ready.” Students have had quite a year as a result of the pandemic forcing schools to make changes. Lauren Elie, Gina’s daughter, believes it brought the family closer together.

Our relationship as triplets has changed a great deal this year due to COVID because we are all going to college. She stated, “OK, this time is so beneficial for us, especially for our parents, as well.” The siblings said they were excited about what the future holds as they crossed the stage. Glenn Elie stated, “I’ve had [Gaston and Lauren] to lean on in everything I’ve experienced now, but now it’s just me on my own.”
