Identical triplets

A Northern California couple says they are still getting over the shock of becoming parents to rare triplets.

Abby, Brin and Laurel were born two weeks ago in a Sacramento hospital to proud parents Hannah and Tom Hepner.

Their doctor says the chances of having identical triplets without fertility drugs are extremely rare -- between 1 in 1,000,000 and 1 in 200,000,000.

The three girls weigh between three and four pounds each and should be able to go home by the first of the year.
