Baby times 3: Rare identical triplets born to Indiana couple

GREENFIELD, Ind. (AP) – An Indiana couple is welcoming the arrival of rare identical triplets.
Ashley Alexander of Greenfield delivered the three girls Thursday. WRTV-TV reports Sophia Mae and Alexis Kae weighed in at more than 4 pounds. Sister Ella Shae weighed 5 pounds.
Alexander says she and husband Matt conceived the triplets without use of fertility drugs. The babies were delivered at 36 weeks' gestation.
The Alexanders also have a son, Stefan, who was born in 2012.
The Greenfield Reporter says identical triplets occur when one egg is fertilized and divides into three separate embryos. The Alexander babies share identical genetics.
The Alexanders estimate they'll go through 7,000 diapers in the first year alone.
