SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CNN) - Hannah and Tom Hepner are the proud parents of identical triplets. But these aren't just any identical triplets, they're extremely rare because they were conceived naturally - without fertility drugs.

The chances of a naturally occurring identical triplet birth are between one in a million and one in 200 million.

The babies are named Abby, Brin and Laurel. They weighed 11-pound - combined - at birth.
