UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania woman has doubled down and become a mother of six by giving birth to identical triplets.

Kishauna Rose, of Uniontown, tells KDKA-TV (https://cbsloc.al/2d0wpn6 ) she thought she was carrying twins when she visited her doctor a few months ago.

She says a sonogram immediately showed two heads in her womb then just before she was about to leave, the doctor saw a third head.

Rose gave birth on Sept. 9 at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC in Pittsburgh.

The triplet sisters are named Kilaiah (ky-LAY’-ah), Kinya, and Kiyelle (KY’-ell).

Identical triplets are conceived when a single egg splits three ways.

Experts have debated how rare that is, but disagree, with various sources claiming the odds of identical triplets range from 60,000 to 1 to 200 million to 1.
