Welsh Baby Triplets Bring Triple the Cuteness

Identical triplets from Wales steal hearts everywhere

If we had to place bets, we'd wager that right now as we speak, 1-year-old identical triplets Ffion, Maddison and Paige are off somewhere in their hometown of Pontypoon, Wales, being utterly adorable.

After all, it's kind of their thing.

The three sisters have quickly gone from hometown cuties to full-on viral sensations, making just about everyone who lays eyes on them fall in love. Their parade of cuteness has been lovingly chronicled through photos taken by their mom, whose snapshots of their everyday adventures are downright aww-inducing.

For starters, all three girls are usually dressed in identical or near-identical outfits, but sport different colored toenail polish to tell them apart. To make things even cuter, the color they each wear begins with the same letter as their first name. “It's not a fashion statement,” explained their mom, Karen, to the Daily Mail. “We really struggle to tell them apart!”

So until the girls are grown, and the differences between them are far more obvious, Ffiona wears fuchsia, Maddison wears mint green, and Paige wears purple.

These little cuties also beat some incredible odds to get here — the chances of identical triplets are a mind-boggling 1 in 160,000. When the girls were finally born, they came a whole two months early, via emergency C-section, and each weighed between 3.3 and 3.8 lbs.

But today, they're happy and healthy (and stylish, as you can see).

They're also running through diapers like nobody's business. Their parents say they require 120 diapers and 84 bottles a week. (Is your jaw on the floor, like ours?)

But luckily, their insta-fame has turned into a bit of a money-maker, as they've booked gigs on various television shows like the U.K.'s "Casualty."

But when they're not off being all famous and stuff, they do regular everyday things with Mom. (Well, at least when she can get them all out of the house in one piece.)

"Going out is a military operation, which we call 'Operation Triplets'," explains Karen. "We can't just think, Oh, shall we go out?"

"We need at least 24 hours' notice. It's like packing to go on holiday every time we leave the house. We have a triple pushchair and we’ve had to get a bigger car, a seven-seater Ford Galaxy."

Staying in is way easier — and way more fun, as evidenced by this bath time photo.

(Matching Bumbo chairs! We can't!)

Other times, they show off their impeccable matching style and mug for the camera, like the true baby models they are.

Say cheese!

Too cute.
