Born in the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne on January 28, 2004 the boys were certainly a huge surprise for their parents.
Mum Sharon said she found out she was pregnant firstly when she went to have a tubal ligation, after already having three children.
“So that was our first shock,” she said.
“Then at the eight week scan I was told I was having triplets.
“When I rang my husband who was away driving trucks, he had to pull over and sit on the side of the road for quite some time.
“We just couldn’t believe it.”
Two of the boys are identical ‘mirror twins’ and the other is just like an ordinary brother with all three boys being a 1 in 8,100 miracle of natural conception.
“I still get the identical ones confused,” Sharon said.
The boys received a scenic plane flight with Jarden Aviation as a special gift for their birthday.
“It was something different for them,” Sharon said.
“They took off at the same time they were born and the pilot thought they were fascinating.
“It was great because it was the first time the boys couldn’t guess what they were getting for their birthdays.”
