 German Woman Gives Birth To Identical Triplets

A 34-year old German woman has given birth to three identical girls, an event thought to occur in less than one in a million births, doctors in Bonn said on Tuesday.

The three girls, Alexandra, Antonia and Adriana, were delivered within seconds of each other in mid-June and all three are healthy, the hospital said in a statement.

"At first we could not believe it: they were triplets and even identical triplets," said the mother, identified only as Karina P.

The triplets were delivered six weeks early as doctors were concerned the mother's waters could break too early, endangering the babies.

The couple already has two other daughters, six-year-old Anna and two-year-old Diana.

"As the triplets already have a healthy birth-weight and the mother is doing well given the circumstances, the whole big family is positive and happy and looking to an exciting and certainly not boring future together," the hospital statement said.
