Couple has identical triplets beating odds of 200 million to one

ANI | 02nd Oct 2013

A couple has given birth to three identical babies, beating odds of 200 million to one to even be conceived.

The baby girls named Ffion, Maddison and Paige Gilbert, who were formed when a single egg split into three, which is an extremely rare occurrence, have finally arrived home after spending six weeks in the hospital, the Mirror reported.

Doctors had warned the couple that the unborn babies could steal fluid off each other in the cramped space they shared, killing one or more of them, but the determined parents rejected pleas to terminate their girls.

The 32-year old mother Karen Gilbert admitted that she is overjoyed at the safe birth of her daughters, who were born two months early at Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport, weighing a little over 3.8 lbs (1.7 kg) each.
