46-year-old lady has triplets: 1-in-20-billion chances
Fertility doctors advised Audrey Tiberius, 41, that her IVF prospects were 10%.
The Utah parent told TODAY Parents, "Your eggs are too old." "Three IVF attempts failed."
Tiberius naturally conceived at 46. She and her 41-year-old husband had triplet sons on March 30.
Sky, River, and Bay joined Marcus, 13, James, 11, Christian, 9, and Max, 7.
Tiberius claimed the chances of identical triplets are 1 in 200 million. The chances of a 45-year-old producing identical triplets are 1 in 20 billion, according to a statistician.
"Seven was my fantasy number. Because of my age, I didn't believe it would happen,” she said. At 45, Tiberius' chance of miscarriage is 80%, but she learnt to trust her body. She had faith.
"I hoped my kids would be safe and I'd deliver on time," she added.
Tiberius called her fertility naïve. She thought she could have children in her 40s since her paternal grandmother did.
She didn't understand older celebs utilise frozen or donated eggs. "Doctors should speak to women about fertility to avoid them grief."
Tiberius' triplets were "miracles."
