Montana couple gives birth to rare, one in a million identical triplets
Jase and Jody Kinsey are probably really tired right about now.
Meet Cade, Ian and Milo ... a set of special identical triplets.
The womb-mates were born on December 5th to parents Jase and Jody, and the trio is extra-rare because they were conceived completely naturally without the aid of fertility drugs.
There aren't exact statistics on just how rare spontaneous identical triplets are. According to Huggies, the odds could be somewhere between one in 60,000 and one in 200 million. But, for a little perspective -- the odds of fraternal triplets are around one in just 4,000. So, suffice it to say these three are unique.
The Montana parents sat down with KULR shortly after giving birth and said when they found out they were having multiples, they weren't surprised.
"My dad's a multiple, and I just kind of had that feeling that it would get me sooner or later," Jase told NBC8.
The babies were born about a month ahead of schedule, but the Billings Gazette reports that the doctor who delivered the three bundles of joy said they were in "excellent condition."
Baby Cade was released from the Billings Clinic and is staying with his mom and grandmom at the Ronald McDonald house. Ian and Milo are spending some more time under doctors' care to work on eating.
The Clinic posted an address to its facebook page for those who want to lend a helping hand with necessities like diapers or gift cards.
Amazingly, almost exactly a year ago, a Sacramento couple gave birth to another set of spontaneous identical triplets on November 22nd 2013. Just like the Kinsey triplets, the Hepner babies were born a little before their due date at 33 weeks. An average pregnancy lasts about 40 weeks.
Welcome to the world, little ones!
