In an astonishing turn of events, a 46-year-old mother from Utah, Audrey Tiberius, has welcomed identical triplets into the world, conceived naturally against the odds. Audrey and her husband, Tyler Tiberius, 41, embraced their triplet sons—Sky, River, and Bay—on March 30, marking a joyous culmination to their struggle with infertility.
The couple, already parents to Marcus (13), James (11), Christian (9), and Max (7), faced discouraging news from fertility specialists, who asserted that Audrey’s eggs, deemed “too old,” posed a significant challenge to conception. Despite undergoing three unsuccessful rounds of in vitro fertilization (IVF), Audrey defied expectations and became pregnant at 45.
Reflecting on her journey, Audrey emphasized the importance of open conversations between doctors and women regarding fertility options early on. She acknowledged the influence of her paternal grandmother, who had children in her 40s, and the misconception that age wouldn’t hinder her chances of conceiving naturally.
Her triplets are nothing short of ‘miracles,’ with a statistician estimating the odds of a 45-year-old having identical triplets at one in 20 billion. Throughout the high-risk pregnancy, Audrey turned to her faith, expressing gratitude that her babies were delivered safely and at the intended time.
The risk of miscarriage at 45 is approximately 80 percent, according to the Mayo Clinic, making Audrey’s successful pregnancy even more remarkable. Now, at five months old, the triplets keep Audrey busy with seven hours a day spent pumping breast milk. While she explores milk donors to create more family time, Audrey is overjoyed to have fulfilled her dream of having seven sons.
