Usually when Mom tells you that you are 'special' or 'unique' it's just a little white lie to make you feel better, but for Rocco, Roman and Rohan it's the absolute truth - in a manner of speaking.
This AmoMama article borders on the unbelievable, the impossible. When last have you heard of identical triplets? Chances are you haven't.
Becki-Jo Allen from Liverpool was surprised enough to hear that she was expecting, but never did she think that she was expecting triplets.
The 23-year-old mother had been blessed with the news of her triplets after she had visited the doctor for nausea and headaches.
She had been nine weeks pregnant when an early scan revealed that there were three little babies in her growing tummy...
"When they were newborns it was quite hard to tell which one was which, but I never got them mixed up myself."
Becki-Jo was initially told that her three boys, Roman, Rohan and Rocco were not identical triplets, but family and friends soon raised suspicion.
No one could tell them apart, and if it was not for subtle birth marks, Becki-Jo herself would have had hard time identifying her own boys.
"I hadn’t even thought it might be twins, let alone triplets, and we haven’t got any in the family."
It was not until they started developing defining personalities that it became easier for their mother to tell them apart.
Becki-Jo admitted that it was quite the challenge when they were still newborn babies who had not yet developed their own characters.
Becki-Jo had recently approached a laboratory to determine whether or not her triplets are in fact identical as everyone in her family had suspected.
After sending saliva swabs from inside their cheeks for testing, the laboratory confirmed that Roman, Rohan and Rocco are indeed identical.
The odds of having identical triplets are reportedly an astonishing one out of every 200 million!
So when Becki-Jo Allen tells her boys that they are special, they can rest assured that they really are.
