The odds of triplets aren't exactly high to begin with, and the odds of identical triplets are even more unlikely -- 1 in 200 million, to be exact.
Nevertheless, Zoe, Kim and Amy, three identical baby girls, arrived yesterday -- conceived without fertility treatment by their 25-year-old mother and her partner.
