Two sets of triplets!
The odds of having a set of triplets without the aid of fertility drugs? 1 in 8,000.
The possibility of following it up with a second set? 1 in 64 million. Victoria and Tim Lasita of Cincinnati, Ohio beat the odds to become parents to their second batch of three babies yesterday.
"I guess we should have been more specific and said one more child, not one more set," said Victoria, 39, who delivered the babies at 34 weeks of pregnancy. The three boys, Casey Alexander, Caden Bradley and Carson Charles all appear healthy and weigh over 4lbs each. It's not certain when they'll be allowed home to join their 4 year old siblings, Jessica, Jillian and Brian.
It seems like a bargain to get six kids out of just two pregnancies, but the thought of having to deal that many birthdays on just two dates makes me twitchy.
Congratulations and best wishes to the Lasitas!
