Identical triplets have been born in Kamloops, B.C., something doctors say happens once in every 50 million births.
Mahalia and Mike Meeuwsen of Salmon Arm welcomed their three baby girls on Tuesday at Royal Inland Hospital.
They were expected to make their debut on Nov. 16 but complications with the pregnancy meant a scheduled caesarean section had to be done earlier.
The triplets were conceived naturally without the use of fertility drugs.
Mom and all the babies, who were born about eight weeks premature, are said to be doing well.
The infants are expected to remain in the neonatal intensive care unit for some time and there is no word yet on their names.
