 Freaky Feat by Aussie Grandma
In what is being called a freak 'one in-10-million' happening, an Australian grandmother has delivered identical triplets who were conceived naturally.

The three '99.9-percent' identical boys - Cooper, Kyle and Jordan - were born at 34 weeks by Caesarean section at Brisbane's Mater Mothers' Hospital.

Janelle Perry and her husband, Robert, already have a 4-year-old daughter.

Janelle also has four children in their 20s from a previous marriage as well as two grandchildren.

The Perrys, of Logan, south of Brisbane, sold all their baby things last October after trying unsuccessfully for two years to have more kids.

A doctor had given Janelle only a 5 per cent chance of having another child naturally.

"We thought: 'Oh well. It'll probably never happen'. We'd sort of given up," The Courier Mail quoted Perry, as saying.

"Rebecca kept telling me in November: 'You've got three babies in your tummy, Mummy - one for me, one for Dad and one for you'. I thought: 'No way' and told her: 'There's no babies in there'. Then, in December, I found out I was pregnant," she added.

According to doctors, the Perry babies are almost certainly monochorionic triamniotic triplets, meaning they are from one egg and sperm which split in the first few days after fertilisation.
