  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

A woman has beaten odds of 160,000 to one to give birth to identical triplet girls.

Ffion, Maddison and Paige Gilbert, who were conceived naturally from one egg, are now at home in Pontypool in Torfaen after spending six weeks in hospital.

Wow, that's pretty crazy! I've known a few sets of triplets, but in all three cases, two of them were identical twins and the third was fraternal. And oddly, in all three cases, they're all girls. No boys.
