Irvington woman gives birth to identical triplets

Posted: Updated:

An Irvington mother gave birth to identical triplets on Wednesday. According to doctors, the chances of having identical triplets are one in 100 million.

Kerry Lyons and her husband, Desmond, welcomed the three baby boys into their family, which already has a 3-year-old boy and 2-year-old girl. The triplets ? Kevin, Declan and Cormac ? were delivered by C-section exactly one minute apart and are all healthy.

Lyons conceived the three babies without fertility treatments and says though the pregnancy was difficult, the delivery was a breeze.

?We are just so grateful, so moved, and so thankful,? Lyons says.
