REDMOND, OR  –  An Oregon family has three new members, identical triplets. What makes these baby boys so special is that they were all conceived naturally.

Mason, Jaxson, and Hunter are perfectly identical.  They were born on July 29th and equally adorable. KTVZ-TV reports that they were born healthy, but had a few medical bumps along the way.  They were in the hospital up until about a week and half ago.

“They all came out in the same minute. They have the same birth time.” said mother Deanna Marcum. “Right now they are different sizes. But, that won’t last forever. So, we are gonna be painting some toes and assigning some colors.”

Sounds a little girly. For mom, she’s happy to be surrounded by boys.

“I think of all the girls that will be around.” said Deanna Marcum.

“I think about the cost of insurance when they turn 16.” said father Brian Marcum.

Since they’re identical both parents know many tricks are in store.

“I’m curious when they are older and out of school… the stories that they will tell us that they did when they were younger and who did what.” said Brian Marcum.

But, that’s a few years away.
