Who doesn't love babies? No one can resist their absolutely adorable faces and sweet souls. More lovely are twins and triplets; that just multiplies the fun!
Here are some fun facts about twins and triplets. According to a medical mathematical rule called the Hellin’s law:
1. One in 90 births is twins
2. One in 8,100 births is triplets
Identical twins occur when a single sperm fertilizes one single egg, which then splits into two. For identical triplets or quadruplets, the fertilized egg splits into three and four, respectively.
Parents welcome rare triplets
Stephanie and Brad Harris could finally take their rare identical triplets home. The trio was born in Houston hospital.
The little triplet girls - named Addison, Savannah, and Kinsley - have amazed their parents, as not only do they look alike, but they also act alike.
Their mom, Stephanie, said:
”Just triple of everything. They sit there. They make the same noises. They do the same thing. They have their own language."
The doctor had initially told them to expect twins, however, it wasn't until later the doctors revealed that they were having triplets instead.
The girls were born on December 1, 2015, ten weeks premature. Their parents came up with a color coordinating system to differentiate the girls.
”We got ankle bracelets, and we're going to color coordinate them hopefully, we don't get them mixed up."
Congratulations to the parents!
