A 46-year-old mother has given birth to identical triplets that she conceived naturally after being told she couldn’t have any more children because her eggs were ‘too old.’ 

Audrey Tiberius, from Utah, and her husband, Tyler Tiberius, 41, welcomed their triplet sons Sky, River, and Bay on March 30 after years of struggling with infertility. They are also parents to sons Marcus, 13, James, 11, Christian, 9, and Max, 7.

She got pregnant at age 45, four years after a fertility specialist told her that the odds of her conceiving a child with in vitro fertilization (IVF) were just 10 percent.

‘They said, “I’m sorry, your eggs are too old,”‘ Tiberius recalled in an interview with Today. ‘We did three rounds of in vitro and they all failed.’

The mother of seven believes doctors should be more forthcoming with women about their fertility options early on to ‘save them heartache.’ 

She explained that her paternal grandmother had babies in her 40s, and she naively thought she would be able to do the same. 

‘I didn’t realize that older celebrities often use frozen eggs or donor eggs,’ she said.

Tiberius described her triplets as being ‘miracles’ — and for good reason. She was told by a statistician that ‘the odds of a 45-year-old having identical triplets are one in 20 billion.’

'I prayed that my babies would be safe and that I would deliver them when I was supposed to - and that’s what happened,' she said

She turned to her faith to help her stay positive throughout her high-risk pregnancy. At 45, the risk of a miscarriage is about 80 percent, according to the Mayo Clinic. 

‘I prayed that my babies would be safe and that I would deliver them when I was supposed to — and that’s what happened,’ she said. 

Tiberius’s triplets are now five months old, and she spends a total of seven hours a day pumping breast milk for her baby boys. 

She is looking into milk donors so she can spend more time with her family, but she couldn’t be happier to have seven sons. 

‘I always had seven in my mind — that was always my dream number,’ she said. ‘But I didn’t think it would happen for me because of my age.’
