What's even more amazing, a different 46 year old woman also naturally conceived triplets and had them at the same hospital just months earlier. Sounds like there's some pretty fertile women in their 40's out there! Read more:
The couple, from Traveston in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, had been trying for a third child for years without success.
"It's been pretty traumatic. The last miscarriage was a month before I fell pregnant with them," Mrs Pernoud said.
"I thought, 'no, that's it. I can't do it any more. There's only so much a woman can take'.
"I had made up my mind to go to the doctor to get my tubes tied."
Instead, she fell pregnant again and, weeks later, learned she was expecting triplets.
"It was very emotional. I thought, 'here we go again for another miscarriage'," she said.
"But miracles happen. They're just meant to be here. I don't know the reason but it's meant to be."
Mr Pernoud now calls his wife "Super Maman" – French for supermum.
The Pernouds have had to renovate their four-bedroom house so the babies can all fit in one room.
Queensland Fertility Group's David Molloy said having identical triplets at 40 was as rare as winning Gold Lotto.
In June, Logan grandmother Janelle Perry, 46, gave birth to naturally conceived triplet boys, Cooper, Kyle and Jordan. (from:news.com.au)
