London , Oct 8 (ANI): A Brit woman has beaten odds of 200 million to one to become pregnant with triplets while she was on the pill.

Kirsty Hale, 22, and fiance Toby Wilson, 28, from Ringwood, Hants, were surprised when a scan confirmed that she was expecting the trio having conceived naturally.

The trio arrived 13 weeks early following an emergency Caesarean first was Gabriella, who weighed 1lb 14oz; next came Lily at 1lb 11oz and finally Alicia at 1lb 13oz.

Because of their vulnerable size they are being cared for in incubators, although doctors are happy with their progress.

“They are tiny. I know everyone thinks their babies are the cutest but I genuinely do think they are. They are just amazing, the Telegraph quoted Wilson , as saying.

“We weren”t even trying for a family. When Kirsty got pregnant she was on the pill.

“I don”t think we have got out heads around it even now but we are so excited - it’’s an instant family,” he added.

The triplets are all off ventilators and are breathing for themselves with a little bit of help.

They are set to be released on their due date which was December 14. (ANI)
