19-Year-Old Parents Welcome Identical Triplets Into The World

Hills and Logan Brown-Fletcher – both 19 years old and residents of Newberg, Oregon – welcomed three daughters into the world on August 1.

Their names are Raelyn, Avery and Elaina.

But it gets even crazier: The three daughters are identical triplets.

The infants – who respectively weighed in at 2 pounds, 12 ounces; 3 pounds, 11 ounces; and 2 pounds, 15 ounces – were delivered by caesarean section 33 weeks into Amber’s pregnancy at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center.

This is the average gestational age for triplets.

“My dad has multiples in his family, so I figured it would happen to me someday,” Amber said her reaction to learning she was having three kids.

However, her fiance was in for the shock of his life.

“I was crying and swearing!” Brown-Fletcher admits.

Yeah. We would be, too!

Logan has since calmed down and gained some perspective, however.

“I was a little scared because I was still in high school and working a small job with not many hours,” he says.

“But as we started to approach their due date, I was like, ‘This is going to be life changing, but I am ready.’”

Sadly, both Amber and Logan did not receive full support from those around them.

“A lot of our friends weren’t very supportive at first,”. “They were all like, “You are too young, you are not ready.’”

So far, so very good when it comes to their health.

“I’m just excited to take them home and be a family together in one house,” says Brown-Fletcher.
