Parents celebrate their 200 million-to-one miracle - identical triplet girls

With their bright blue eyes and cherubic smiles,
Gabriella, Alessia and Olivia are a picture of cuteness.
But as well as being adorable, they are also quite extraordinary.
For they are naturally-conceived identical triplets.
Medical experts say the chances of such births are around 200million to one.
Their delighted parents are Richard Rees, 22, and his 23-year-old fiance Carmela Testa, who is a midwife. She gave birth in January surrounded by colleagues at the maternity unit in Peterborough where she normally works.
The sisters were born seven weeks prematurely via Caesarean section.
They weighed between 3lb 4oz and 3lb 10oz and spent three weeks in an incubator until they were strong enough to go home.
