Identical triplets were born a minute apart from a Pennsylvanian woman on June 5, 2012.
Identical triplets are so rare that it occurs once in 500,000 pregnancies.
But over the weekend at Portland’s Randall Children Hospital, 3 boys were born one minute apart.
Named Daniel Jeffrey, Ryder James and Garrett Cambell, the identical triplets arrived more than three months before they’re supposed to be born.
Their parents–Jessica and Daniel Price–consider having them a challenge and at the same time a blessing.
“It’s one day at a time. You don’t know what to expect but right now everything is good,” said their smiling Mom Jessica.
The Beasly triplets have two siblings, 2-year-old Zachary and 4-year-old Sophia.
The triplets will spend 6 to 12 weeks at Randall Children’s Hospital. Then Jessica and her husband Daniel are ready to raise 5 children under the age of 5.
“We’re watching their breathing and making sure that their airways stay open,” explained NICU nurse Larissa Raze.
The hospital’s public relations specialist said in Oregon had 103 triplet births per 100,000 births in 2009, that’s almost 3 percent.
