19-year-old Amber and her boyfriend, Logan, did not think they would attract such attention. This is because on August 1, they welcomed three identical girls into the world, and this is really rare.
The girls are identical triplets ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ without any ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛs. The first-time parents’ new additions were born by C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ at 34 weeks gestation.
Raelyn Kimberly was born first and weighed two pounds and 12 ounces; Avery Marie was born second, weighing three pounds and 11 ounces; and Elaina Nicole was born third, weighing two pounds and 15 ounces.
They were not strong enough to eat on their own, but they were healthy and could breathe independently.
“I’ve always wanted to be a dad,” Logan said. “I’ve got a lot to do now.”
The new mother added that she was so happy after seeing her baby girls for the first time. “My heart was full and I was totally in love,” she said. “I want to be with them all the time. It’s hard to be away from them.”
The triplets’ neonatologist, Dr. Craig Novack, said the odds of such a birth are one in a million.
“I have never seen triplets like this, although I have seen identical twins and one other baby many times,” admitted Amber’s doctor. Such cases occur mainly among couples using the I.V.F method. This makes Amber’s pregnancy even more special!
Now that they have their new additions, the couple, who are hoping to marry on their two-year anniversary, are preparing for their homecoming. They have already bought three car seats instead of one, and a van to accommodate their family. While the couple looks forward to caring for their new bundles of joy, they said they want more children once the girls are older, with Hills noting she also wants boys.
Congratulations to the young parents!
